airBaltic has opened a new base in Tampere. It will connect Tampere with seven direct flights in addition to continued operations to Riga. The opening of the new base took place during a special event in Tampere.
“As of today, we call Tampere one of our bases,” said Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer, airBaltic. “The opening of the new base provides new travel opportunities for both our current and future passengers. We hope that the passenger demand will gradually grow, therefore we may launch additional new destinations to various business hubs and leisure destinations over time.”

This launch marks a great milestone in the long cooperation between Finavia and airBaltic. Seven new routes bring a great variety of European cities close to both leisure and business travellers of Tampere-Pirkkala area, which we can all be very happy about.”
