Flights & Airports

Flight pricing in Finland
Most flight tickets in Finland are now purchased online, and sites which provide prices from numerous airlines 'at one click' can land you a deal you would not have found if you had gone straight to an airline. Thankfully if you do have to go straight to an airline, pricing is more reasonable than it was in the past. So, do some comparing if you can but if you get caught in a situation like missing your flight and having to buy a replacement ticket at the airport, you probably won't get charged an outrageous price. It's a buyers' market!

Domestic Finnish Airlines - Schedules & Bookings

This industry has been experiencing turbulence for some time. Domestic airlines can pop up, merge, get taken over, or disappear. Whatever the situation, Finnair is sure to continue providing regular, reliable services throughout Finland.

Many of the smaller airlines servicing domestic routes have schedules subject to change according to season or demand; please check their sites for service details. Tickets at each airline can be booked and purchased online. You can also search for domestic flights on sites such as Rantapallo, who provide prices, details and bookings for multiple operators.

Following are domestic flight operators in Finland as of May 2015.

International Flights - Schedules & Bookings

There are about 50 passenger airlines flying in and out of Finland from all over the world - way too many to list here! Let's just say you shouldn't have any trouble coming or going...

If you are looking for 'distant future' flight schedules, the most accurate source of information is always the airline's web site. If you need arrival or departure information for an 'imminent' flight in Finland, see www.finavia.fi.
