Lowcost airlines in Finland

Wesneday, June 22, 2016

Finland can be a nice place to visit for those who enjoy skiing and other winter activities, as well as in the summer when temperatures are more than warm enough to swim in the lakes and in the sea around Helsinki and other areas to the south of the country. Because of the country’s location far in the North, and partially within the Arctic Circle, it can seem distant and difficult to reach. Nevertheless, there are many cheap travel options that can reduce the price of your visit to Finland, the “land of a thousand lakes”.

Air Baltic

Although not normally considered a “low-cost airline”, Air Baltic is still cheap compared to most major airlines flying in and out of Finland. It is not uncommon to see it as one of the cheapest options for flights when booking a trip to or from the country using an online service. The reason behind this is that the company is a so-called “hybrid company”, combining both a traditional full-service business class option with the low-cost coach options offered by its rivals. It is also worth mentioning that the company is publicly-owned by the Latvian government, and it operates from both the airport in Helsinki and the one in Turku, offering flights to about 60 countries in Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East.

Air Berlin

Air Berlin is a German full-service airline, which nowadays flies to about 150 destinations in Germany, Europe and across the world. Air Berlin’s destinations from Helsinki are Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg and München. Air Berlin has increased its connections throughout Scandinavia and its cooperation with Finnair has brought with it many new opportunities. Air Berlin is able to connect passengers leaving from Helsinki to destinations in Europe, as well as far-flung places such as Thailand, Mexico and the U.S.A.
