The airline Ryanair will fly from Helsinki to Alicante from March 2022. The new route will be operated by Ryanair twice a week (Sundays and Wednesdays) between April and October. The first flight on the new route will take place on 27 March 2022. The last flight this year will be on 26 October 2022. This decision was announced after a meeting between the airline and the Alicante City and Beach Tourism Board during the Fitur International Tourism Fair. The Nordic countries, such as Denmark, Sweden and Norway, are of great importance to the region. Many properties in and around Gran Alacant are owned by citizens of these countries. With Finland, another country is added, from which it is hoped to attract new investors for holiday properties in addition to classic summer tourism.
