Finnair says it has delayed the departures of some flights and cancelled others due to the snowstorm that is expected to sweep across southern and central parts of Finland between Monday and Tuesday.

The state-owned airline revealed yesterday in a press release that a total of 19 flights have been cancelled and that the departures of an unspecified number of flights will be delayed from 15 to 120 minutes at Helsinki Airport on Monday. A list of the cancelled flights can be found here.

Its customer service may also be unusually busy due to the delays and cancellations.

Finnair reminded that the weather conditions may also make it difficult to deliver baggage in time, adding that passengers who are able to should consider travelling only with hand luggage.

Finavia, the operator of the airport network of Finland, says air traffic control may have to restrict the number of arrivals and departures for safety reasons due to strong winds and bad visibility. The state-owned company also underlined that it will do its utmost to keep the runways open and allow airlines to continue their operations with minimum disruptions.

“The drifting of snow at the airport may complicate the loading and unloading, as well as de-icing, of aircraft,” it stated in a press release on Sunday.

The Finnish Meteorological Institute has forecast that up to 20 centimetres of snow may fall as a low-pressure front makes its way across the country between Monday and Tuesday. The Finnish Transport Agency additionally encouraged motorists to return from their Easter holidays already on Sunday.
