    It’s great to see that Finnish airports are gradually recovering from the impact of the pandemic. The increase in the number of international passengers shows a positive trend in the tourism sector. Hopefully, with continued efforts and safety measures, the passenger numbers will soon reach pre-pandemic levels.
