Europe’s biggest low cost carrier Ryanair planned to fly four routes to Lappeenranta from Milan Bergamo, Berlin, Budapest and Memmingen near Münich.
Due to corona pandemic and changing travel restrictions, these routes will be cancelled for the winter season.
These routes are due to start again from summer season 2021 in April. In addition new route from Vienna to Lappeenranta is also due to start in April.
”Corona pandemic and in particular constantly changing travel restrictions have made situation extremely difficult for airlines, airports and for passengers.
When leisure travel starts to recover again, we believe that customers first seek uncrowded destinations where they can enjoy relaxing holiday without the crowds.
This is exactly what Europe’s 4th biggest lake area, Lake Saimaa, can offer. At Lappeenranta Airport we follow all instructions and recommendations to make the travel experience comfortable and safe.
Ryanair’s unbeatable low fares offer tempting opportunity to try somewhere new and explore beautiful Finnish Lakeland. Nearest lake is only 2 kms from Lappeenranta Airport, so starting your holiday without crowds could not be any easier”, says Eija Joro, CEO of Lappeenranta Airport.

Passengers have found Lappeenranta Airport as an easy gateway to Finland and to exciting metropolis of St. Petersburg. Both Helsinki and St. Petersburg are only 2 hours away from Lappeenranta Airport,” Eija Joro continues.
