Finavia airports will connect Finland to the rest of the world with more than 140 international routes in summer 2024. During the upcoming summer season, eight new and returning international routes will open at the airports. Airlines are also adding new weekly services to popular summer destinations.

"This summer, passengers will be able to enjoy a great selection of routes to destinations around the world. There will be around 130 international routes from Helsinki Airport during the upcoming summer season, and there will also be daily flights from Helsinki Airport to domestic destinations. We are actively developing routes in cooperation with airlines and tourism operators," says Petri Vuori, Finavia's Senior Vice President responsible for route development.

The selection of long-haul routes from Helsinki Airport will be expanded when Finnair resumes flights to Nagoya, Japan, in May. During the summer season, Finnair will fly to five destinations in the United States and ten destinations across Asia.

Asian destinations are also served by Juneyao Airlines, which flies to Shanghai and Zhengzhou in China, and Japan Airlines, which flies to Haneda Airport in Tokyo. Qatar Airways, on the other hand, offers flights to Doha, Qatar, in the Middle East. The flights are operated by Finnair.

The European destination offering at Helsinki Airport will also be broadened when Finnair opens a new route to Wrocław, Poland, at the beginning of April. Finnair will also resume flights to Tartu, Estonia, and add more weekly flights to Trondheim and Bodø in Norway and Visby in Sweden. In addition, travelling to Lapland in the summer will become easier thanks to Finnair adding more flights to Kuusamo, Ivalo and Kittilä. Finnair operates several flights a day to Rovaniemi, to which Norwegian also offers flights.

Norwegian and Ryanair are both adding two new destinations for Helsinki Airport. At the beginning of June, Norwegian will launch flights to Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, and to Bergamo Airport in Milan, Italy. Norwegian offers flights from Helsinki Airport to a total of 23 destinations in Europe. Ryanair, on the other hand, will start flying to Thessaloniki, Greece, and Dubrovnik, Croatia, in early April. During the summer, Ryanair will offer flights to a total of 12 destinations from Helsinki Airport.

"In addition to Helsinki Airport, you can also travel to international destinations from elsewhere in Finland. There are scheduled flights from our network airports to a total of 13 destinations in Europe," Vuori says.

At Oulu Airport, passengers are served by a year-round route to Central Europe. Lufthansa will continue flying its route from Oulu to Munich, which opened in December 2023, over the summer and up to next winter.

A new Air Baltic route to Palma de Mallorca will open at Tampere-Pirkkala Airport at the beginning of May. In the summer, Air Baltic will fly from Tampere to a total of six destinations: Mallorca, Málaga, Rhodes, Copenhagen, Riga and Tallinn.

In the summer, there will be direct scheduled flights to five different destinations from Turku Airport. Wizz Air’s scheduled flights to Rome will continue from last summer. The airline also flies from Turku to Gdańsk. There are also flights from the airport to Riga, Latvia, by Air Baltic, to Stockholm by SAS and to Mariehamn by populAir.

From April, Vaasa Airport will offer even smoother connections to Sweden as SAS doubles its weekly flights to Stockholm.
