Why book domestic flights in Finland?

The snowy weather and the shape of the country makes air travel more efficient, unlike driving from point A to point B. Theboreal forests and lakes are another factor that encouraged travellers to fly. There are many airports across the country, from north parts of the country to the southern part of the country. The biggest international airport in Finland is Helsinki Airport (HEL).
