Finland can be a nice place to visit for those who enjoy skiing and other winter activities, as well
as in the summer when temperatures are more than warm enough to swim in the lakes and in
the sea around Helsinki and other areas to the south of the country. Because of the country’s
location far in the North, and partially within the Arctic Circle, it can seem distant and difficult to
reach. Nevertheless, there are many cheap travel options that can reduce the price of your visit
to Finland, the “land of a thousand lakes”.
Although not normally considered a “low-cost airline”, Air Baltic is still cheap compared to most
major airlines flying in and out of Finland. It is not uncommon to see it as one of the cheapest
options for flights when booking a trip to or from the country using an online service. The reason
behind this is that the company is a so-called “hybrid company”, combining both a traditional
full-service business class option with the low-cost coach options offered by its rivals. It is also
worth mentioning that the company is publicly-owned by the Latvian government, and it
operates from both the airport in Helsinki and the one in Turku, offering flights to about 60
countries in Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East.

as far-flung places such as Thailand, Mexico and the U.S.A.
