Ivalo, Kittilä, and Kuusamo airports in Finland resume services

Finnish airport operator Finavia has announced that its network airports, Ivalo, Kittilä, and Kuusamo have resumed commercial flight operations, after they were closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Finnish airport operator Finavia has announced that its network airports, Ivalo, Kittilä, and Kuusamo have resumed commercial flight operations after they were closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Next month, Tampere Airport plans to reopen for commercial flights.

The terminals of the airports are open to passengers as per their flight schedules, which means they are open for arrival and departure.

Currently, international flights are served from Helsinki, Turku and Mariehamn airports.

In addition, domestic flights are run from Oulu, Vaasa, Kuopio and Rovaniemi airports. The Tampere and Jyväskylä airports are currently operating for deliveries, ambulance flights and the activities of the Finnish Defence Forces.

The services and restaurants at the airports are dependent on the flights and will be open when the aircraft departs or arrives at the airport.

Some services have more frequent opening hours. Passengers can check the opening hours on the website of each airport.

Passengers travelling through Finavia-operated airports have been urged to maintain good hand hygiene and a safe distance from other passengers and employees to limit the spread of Covid-19.

Passengers and employees are also required to wear face coverings.

In May, Finavia announced that it will gradually lift the restrictions that were put in place to control the Covid-19 pandemic.

The move follows the decision of the Finnish Government to slowly ease some of the restrictions that were imposed due to the pandemic.

In a separate development, the City of Vantaa opened a health information point and a Covid-19 testing point at Helsinki Airport in Finland.
