airBaltic opens a direct flight between Tampere and Amsterdam22.4.2022
Flights to Amsterdam will start on June 1, 2022. The connection is a desired and expected addition to the route selection from Tampere-Pirkkala. From the beginning of May, flights will start from the airport to six previously published destinations, and there will be flights to a total of eleven cities in Europe.
In December 2021, airBaltic announced that it would make Tampere-Pirkkala its first non-Baltic home airport. With this new connection, it will further strengthen Tampere-Pirkkala Airport. From the beginning of June, flights are operated to Amsterdam twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays. Flights can be booked now.
- This is a huge opening for us, as Amsterdam is the most important air transport hub in Europe. An active airport is vital for companies in both the region and the whole of central Finland. Amsterdam complements Tampere's global accessibility by now adding connections to the KLM / AirFrance route network in addition to the existing Lufthansa and SAS networks, says Harri Airaksinen, CEO of Business Tampere and Visit Tampere.
- The new connection to Amsterdam is a great addition to airBaltic's route selection, and especially during the summer season, it is also an excellent city holiday destination, says Marja Aalto, a specialist in air traffic from Visit Tampere.
At the beginning of May, flights from Tampere-Pirkkala to six European destinations will begin: Copenhagen, Oslo, Frankfurt, Munich, Malaga and Rhodes. airBaltic also flies from Tampere to Riga. Other direct flights from Tampere are Ryanair's connection to London, SAS's connection to Stockholm and Finnair's flight to Helsinki. In addition, there will be direct TUI leisure flight services from Tampere to Turkey and Greece in the summer and to the Canary Islands during the winter season.
Connections to the field improved
The direct airport bus connection opened by Nysse from the center of Tampere to the airport will significantly improve the accessibility of the airport. Bus number 103, synchronized with flight schedules, passes through the railway station and bus station, thus enabling a smooth travel chain for passengers on Tampere-Pirkkala flights.
The bus operates as a shuttle bus so that it is in Tampere-Pirkkala about an hour before the departure of the plane. The bus is waiting for the return flight at the stop. If the arrival of the flight is delayed, the bus will wait for passengers.
