Flight and bus connection

Connections to Helsinki Airport from Tampere and Turku 

You can now conveniently combine different modes of transport in the same booking when travelling between Tampere or Turku and Helsinki Airport. Connect to our network from these cities by flying or by taking our new bus service starting from only €10 one-way.

Usually, the bus connection can only be booked together with a connecting flight. However, during a test period on 21 November 2022–28 February 2023, you can also purchase a ticket directly from the bus driver for the day-time buses departing from Helsinki if there are free seats on the bus. The ticket price in this case is 30 euros, and card payments are accepted onboard the bus. 

Please note that the temporary night-time buses operated between 3 January and 1 April 2023 do not stop at the Tampere or Turku city centre. It is also not possible to purchase tickets directly from the driver for these buses. Learn more from our travel updates. 

Choosing a bus connection on these short routes is a good way of reducing the carbon footprint of travel.
