Santa Lapland Holiday Flights Airports

By Edited May 7, 2015 0 0

There are many places which you can fly to if you are going on a Santa Holiday or Lapland Holiday. The main airports which you can fly to for these types of holidays are the ones in Finland and especially in the Lapland province, as this means that people won’t have to travel too far to get to their destinations. However, flights which go to places all around the Arctic Circle and Scandinavia are being during the Santa Flights season, as most of the airports in Finland and the surrounding countries are quite small, meaning many are required to keep up with the demand of the Christmas season.

Below is some basic information about the places which you might consider travelling to when you go on a Santa break or Lapland Holiday.

Rovaniemi Airport

IATA Code: RVN

ICAO Code: EFRO

Runway Length: 3,002m/ 9,849 ft

Runway Direction: 03/21

Runway Surface: Asphalt

Rovaniemi Airport is the 4th largest in Finland and with Santa Claus Village and Santa Park situated within 2-3 km it is an ideal place to fly to if you are planning on going on a Santa Holiday. Located approx 8-9 km away from Rovaniemi City, so it isn’t far away from many restaurants and hotels.

The busiest time for the airport is the Christmas season, as this is when everyone is going on holidays to Lapland. During this period the airport serves up-to 400,000 passengers in only 2 months.

Kittila Airport

IATA Code: KTT

ICAO Code: EFKT

Runway Length: 8,202ft/ 2,500m

Runway Surface: Asphalt

Kittila Airport is the second biggest in Lapland. This place is usually used for people wanting to go on holiday for a break of a couple of days, in comparison Rovaniemi which is mainly used for day breaks.

Enontekio Airport

IATA Code: ENF

ICAO Code: EFET

Runway Length: 6,565 ft/ 2,001m

Runway Surface: Asphalt

Enontekio Airport located 6 miles southwest of Enontekio City is one of the smaller destinations. It is, compared to Rovaniemi and Kittila, mainly used by charter airlines which accounts for 95% of the airports traffic. Considering the amount of winter volume at Enontekio, especially on a weekend, check-in is open 4 hours before departure for charter airlines as the airport only has 2 check in desks and 2 boarding gates, so you have to be ready when flying to or from here.

Enontekio Airport

Ivalo Airport

IATA Code: IVL

ICAO Code: EFIV

Runway Length: 8,199ft/2,499m

Runway Surface: Asphalt

Ivalo Airport is the northernmost flight destination in Finland and one of the smallest, meaning that it doesn’t cater for much of the Santa Flights and Santa vacations in the Christmas season. The airport is about 4 miles from Ivalo town.

Kuusamo Airport

IATA Code: OUL

ICAO Code: EFOU

Runway Length: 8,202ft/ 2,500m

Surface Runway: Asphalt

Kuusamo Airport located 4 miles east from Kuusamo town centre, has 2 aircraft stands, 2 check in desks and 1 boarding gate. The place is overall very small, and this means that it doesn’t receive a lot of passengers going Lapland flights and Santa breaks in the Christmas season.
