Ryanair launches new Lappeenranta route to Budapest for winter 2019 -

Europe’s biggest low cost carrier Ryanair increases again flight offering from Lappeenranta.  During winter season 2019/20 Ryanair offers flights to Milan Bergamo, to Berlin Schönefeld and   to Budapest twice a week. Flights to Milan Bergamo and Berlin continue after summer 2019 season and flights to new destination Budapest commence in the end of October.

Ryanair’s total seat offering from Lappeenranta during 2019 will therefore grow nearly 300% compared to year 2018.

Milan Bergamo route operated already during summer season 2018 and was very successful. Berlin route will start in April 2019 and continue as year round route. Budapest route is new from Lappeenranta and is planned to operate as year round route.

These new routes and starting year round operation will take our excellent co-operation with Ryanair to yet another level. This creates a great opportunity to introduce beautiful Finnish Lakeland to new guests during winter season. Europe’s 4th biggest lake area, Lake Saimaa, is very snow- and ice-proof area during winter months. We warmly invite guests to experience fun new winter adventures like skiing and skating on a frozen lake, ice-fishing and ice-swimming. After adrenalin rush you can relax in warm Finnish sauna and chill out in various spas at the shores of Lake Saimaa.

Ryanair’s unbeatable low fares offer tempting opportunity to try somewhere new and explore beautiful Finnish Lakeland. Nearest lake is only 2 kms from Lappeenranta Airport, so starting your holiday without crowds could not be any easier”, says Eija Joro, CEO of Lappeenranta Airport.
