What makes the bus service more sustainable compared to a flight?
Combining different modes of transport can reduce the carbon footprint of travel. Finnair is committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2045, and this option is part of our toolbox.
The bus connection is operated by our partner Korsisaari with high-quality coaches that run on 100% biodiesel. Even though our ATR aircraft used on the same routes are fuel-efficient and well suited for short distances, the passenger load on these flights has been typically uneven depending on the direction. This makes these routes much more inefficient in terms of emissions compared to our other network.
A smooth bus service with a guaranteed flight connection is also a good option for reducing one's carbon footprint for those customers who would otherwise arrive at the airport by car.
