Driving around Turku Airport
There are a few busy motorways near the airport. The E63 (Sodankyla to Turku) passes the airport before meeting the junction with the E18 (Northern Ireland to Russia) just outside the city. It's important to know exactly which exit to take. Choose a car hire package with a sat-nav system if necessary. Traffic in Finland drives on the right-hand side of the road, which can take a while to get used to if you rarely drive abroad.
