Finavia will continue granting discounts on airports charges, air navigation charges and security charges for commercial civilian air traffic. The temporary discount period began on 1 September 2009 and will continue until the end of 2011.
This means an annual discount of EUR 20 million and a total price discount of EUR 47 million during the entire discount period from 1 September 2009 to 31 December 2011. The purpose of the discount policy is to improve the ability of air traffic to operate, especially domestic traffic, which is currently facing challenging times.
“We want to be involved in supporting the aviation business together with the airlines. Finavia aims to provide a cost-efficient business environment. Even before the discount, we were one of Europe’s most inexpensive airports,” says Executive Vice President and COO Ari Haapanen at Finavia.
The importance of air traffic for the competitiveness of Finland and its economic regions is crucial. This fact is at the core of our strategy. Air traffic services enable Finland to be present in Europe and its markets as well as globally.
