Runway renovation to suspend flight operation at Savonlinna Airport

Country´s airports operator Finavia will invest about EUR 3 million in renovating the runway at Savonlinna Airport, said Finavia in a press release.

The aim is to extend the life of the runway and improve the airport’s energy efficiency. The work will be carried out between 2 May and 24 June 2022, during which time flights to Savonlinna Airport will be suspended.

“We have been co-operating closely with the relevant parties and decided that the renovation work should begin in the early summer. This will minimise the inconvenience to passengers. The renovated airport will reopen just in time for the Savonlinna Opera Festival,” said Mari Nurminen, Vice President, Central and Eastern Finland Airports at Finavia.

In addition to repaving the runway, Finavia will repave the taxiway, expand the runway safety zones, renovate the apron and replace the runway lighting system. The runway was last repaved in 2005. The renovation will help maintain the conditions for flight operations.
