Photo exhibition celebrating three years since the launch of Finnair flights from Samara opened on the territory of “Kurumoch” international airport. It is situated on the first floor of the airport terminal in domestic flight baggage claim area.
Finnish nature, national traditions, architecture, sport, auroras, and the Moomins – dozens of photos demonstrate the uniqueness of the Nordic country. The exhibition is organized by Samara airport, Visit Finland national tourism office, and Finnair, a national airline company. The exhibition will run until the end of the summer.
Direct scheduled Samara-Helsinki flights began in August 2014. Since that time, the airline has conducted more than 600 flights and served about 35 000 passengers. There are three direct scheduled flights a week on spring-and-summer schedule of Samara airport with flights on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 5:00. Travel time is about 3 hours which is the shortest route to Europe for “Kurumoch” airport passengers.
It is worth pointing out that Finland is celebrating its 100 years of independence in 2017. Throughout the year, there will be events all across the country to celebrate this date. For that reason, Finland has been named one of the most interesting tourist destinations in 2017 by Lonely Planet and National Geographic.
