The city and the businesses have been very active in promoting their vision as “the Artic Gateway”. We want to be the carrier to enable the Oulu region to reach that vision. We are currently working very closely with the Oulu airport and region to develop the future route network.”

Currently, airBaltic offers four destinations out of Oulu – Riga, Turku, Stockholm (in summer), Tallinn (in summer). Full hub operations will mean 10-15 airBaltic operated direct destinations out of Oulu.
