Most international flights to Finland arrive at the multi-award winning Helsinki Airport (HEL). From here our national airline, Finnair, flies daily to destinations in Europe, Asia, North America and the Middle East. Helsinki Airport is also served by other international airlines, including Aeroflot, Air France-KLM, British Airways, Lufthansa, Turkish Airlines and Qatar Airways.
Finland’s domestic flight network is well developed too, with multiple daily flights to cities around the country. Domestic flights are often expensive though, so trains and buses are a more economical way to travel within Finland. Both are comfortable means of transport, typically offering Wi-Fi and other amenities.
A train ticket from Helsinki to Tampere or Turku, for example, costs around EUR 20, and a bus ticket around EUR 8. To Joensuu or Kuopio, a train ticket is around EUR 45 and a bus ticket around EUR 25. Students with a valid student card get a 30% discount on long-distance train tickets and a 50% discount on local train services.
