Rovaniemi became the second destination Turkish Airlines flies to in Finland following Helsinki. Starting 5 December 2019, Rovaniemi flights will be operated reciprocally three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
During the ceremony of the inaugural flight, Turkish Airlines Board Member Orhan Birdal said:

As it is located on the northern polar line, Rovaniemi is considered one of the best locations to witness this phenomenon. The variety of its winter activities and its premier location to experience northern lights makes Rovaniemi one of the most popular winter tourism destinations while it offers different options to its guests from all over the world with eco-friendly glass igloos and ice hotels.
Always enhancing its fleet of 348 aircrafts, Turkish Airlines increased the number of its destination to 317 with Rovaniemi.
