Airport -> City Center: Bus connection
Save

Hi,

is there any timetable from Kuopio Airport to the city center? I am going to reserve a flight to Kuopio and it would be fine to know which arriving flights are served by bus to Kuopio city center. I would like to avoid paying maybe even 50 € for taxi.

Thank you very much. I found this timetable: http://savonlinja-yhtiot.fi/Lentokentt%C3%A4bussi%2012%208%202013.pdf , but I am going to arrive in August. Is there any current timetable?

OMG, what a maze the Savonlinja site is... As a general rule, there should be a bus service from every flight, so you can expect a connection somewhat like the "winter" schedule. I've written feedback for both Finavia (handling the airport services) and the bus company for missing current timetables.

...when it comes to Savonian people, normal logic does not apply...

But yes, the general rule for every regional airport in Finland is that there is a conncetion for every scheduled flight, arriving and leaving.

I am not sure if that rule applies also on Kuopio because it is stated on wikitravel.org (http://wikitravel.org/en/Kuopio):

"...most flights have bus connection to city centre.".

Also I obtained some arrival instructions from a university where it is stated:

"Please note that there are no busses running from the Kuopio airport to the city centre during the evening and night time nor weekends."

I wrote to Finavia and the bus company too on Friday. So I believe that Savonian make timetables available :).

Finally, a kind buddy on Facebook provided me this link:

The bus company, which serves the connection, has been changed recently so this is probably the reason why it is a bit difficult to find the timetables...
