Airpro, offering a wide range of ground and passenger services, has signed two new partnerships for ground services at a number of airports in Finland.
The ground handling contract between Airpro and Transavia includes the airports of Helsinki, Ivalo, Kittilä, Kuusamo and Rovaniemi. The agreement's operations started in early April 2017 and will span multiple years. Airpro and Transavia have been partners for some years in the airports of Lapland. The new Amsterdam-Helsinki route brings regular Transavia air service to Helsinki Airport for the first time. The route has flights four times a week.
Transavia is the subsidiary of KLM and part of the Air France-KLM Group. Transavia operates flights from the Netherlands, Germany and France to over 100 destinations in Europe and Africa with their fleet of Boeing 737 airliners.
The ground service agreement between Airpro and airBaltic is related to airBaltic's new Tampere-Riga route, opened at the end of March 2017. The new contract will span a few years and, in addition to Tampere-Pirkkala Airport, will cover Finnish airports with Airpro operations, excluding Turku and Helsinki Airport.
The Tampere-Riga route will see airBaltic flights six times a week from 27 March 2017. The airBaltic fleet comprises 25 planes and they offer direct flights from Riga, Vilnius and Tallinn to over 50 destinations in Europe and other locations.
