Early am taxi from Tornio to Oulu airport

After overnight in Tornio we have to be at Oulu airport for a 6 am departure on Sat March 15. How much time do we need to allow and what is the least expensive transportation from Tornio to Oulu airport?

The cheapest option will most likely be taking a bus and train to Oulu on the previous day, spend a night in a hotel and taking a taxi to the airport. You'd have to be at the Oulu Airport one hour before the flight. A taxi from Tornio to Oulu airport will cost at least 250€. You should reserve about 2 h for the journey.

Thanks so much for the information. We're finishing the Rajalta Rajalle ski tour in Tornio the day before, and we would be sad to leave the group on the final night together. We may take a later flight from Oulu even though it is more expensive.

Later flight would be the best option. Last train from Kemi (Tornio) to Oulu arrives at midnight, and after that there is no other bus or train connection before 6am. And if you need to wait for the next morning anyway, transportation from Tornio to Oulu Airport should be included in your registration fee.

But best of luck for your ski tour! Rajalta Rajalle is something I wish to do some year also.

Have you checked the flight connections from Kemi-Tornio Airport? Or Luleå Airport in Sweden? It's practically the same distance to Luleå as to Oulu - and the road to Luleå is faster to drive.

Bus timetable Haparanda-Luleå (and v.v.): ltnbd.se/tidtabeller/…

Bus timetable Luleå - Luleå airport: …lulea.se/download/…l4.pdf

Norwegian Air Shuttle and SAS serve Luleå and Oulu Airport, whereas Finnair serves both Oulu and Kemi-Tornio airports. The same flights from Kemi-Tornio airport you can also buy through Flybe who operates the flights, but when bought through Flybe, it'll be a point-to-point flight whereas through Finnair it can be bought as a connecting flight on the same ticket as the onward flight(s).

OK we booked a 11:15 flight from Oulu, so we can use the RR included transfer to Oulu airport.

I hope you can do the RR ski tour some day too!

Thanks for your help.

Ok, check in and baggage drop at the Oulu Airport closes 45 min before the flight, so you should arrive at the airport by 10:30 at the latest. The RR bus seems to depart at 07:45 from Tornio, so you should have enough time, even if it would go via Kemi-Tornio Airport and Oulu Railway Station.
