Transport

Finland may be in the most northerly corner of Europe. Still reaching it is easy - and less expensive with each passing year.

Finnish airlines and many other Transport
airlines have non-stop, usually
daily connections from cities right across Europe, as well as an extensive network of Asian destinations. Usually the airlines fly to the efficient and modern Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport. Airports in Tampere and Oulu also have international connections.
