With this development programme, Finavia’s investment in Lapland’s tourism industry in the next few years will increase to nearly EUR100 million, according to Kimmo Mäki, CEO, Finavia.
According to Mäki, the aim of the development programme at Lapland’s airports is to improve the customer experience and service level and increase capacity as well as to ensure safe traffic even as the number of flights and passengers grows.
Finavia will carry out a massive expansion at Rovaniemi Airport.
The space for passengers will increase from the current 6,000 m2 to about 10,500 m2.
Kittilä Airport’s new facilities will include services such as a second café.
New space will also be added to the passport control for arriving passengers.
The expansion will add a total of 2,000 m2 of new space.
Ivalo Airport, Finavia will build new aircraft stands, which will nearly double the aircraft parking capacity and thus increase the smoothness of air traffic.
