Vaasa Airport is the 4th largest airport in Finland, and over 330 000 passengers travel via Vaasa every year. Vaasa Airport leans heavily on business travelers, and Finnair’s six daily flights to Helsinki and SAS’ four daily flights to Stockholm, serve the employees of the region’s international companies and their guests perfectly.
Moreover, about 140 charter flights take off from Vaasa Airport yearly to different holiday destinations in Turkey, Greece and the Canary Islands. In the summertime also Norwegian’s four flights per week to Stockholm add to the amount of possibilities both for leisure and business travelers. Smooth flights to Helsinki and Stockholm give both customer groups a broad selection of connections to Central Europe and other parts of the world.
In 2014, the airport terminal was renewed and the services visible to the passengers were improved. The airport’s two cafés serve the passengers, and especially business travelers’ comfort has been taken into account regarding for example the interior design in the departure hall, charging possibilities for mobile devices and the product assortment in the cafés. The renewing continues, and every year a strategy for airport development is been made, where the passengers’ wishes and needs are well taken into account.
For the moment, the only air cargo airport in Finland is in Helsinki, but in Vaasa the conditions are being improved in order to enable air cargo straight from Vaasa in the future. Today the majority of air cargo is transported by truck to Central Europe, and then by air cargo to the end destinations. In Vaasa, the air cargo apron and the handling area for cargo, as well as a multifunctional terminal at the north end of the airport area is under planning. The operating conditions are constantly improved in order to enable sending of Vaasa energy cluster’s high-quality products directly from the home ground to the waiting customers around the world.
