The Jyväskylä Region is located in the middle of finland, and can be easily reached by road, rail, and air.

Helsinki is home to an active international airport from which six daily flights depart to Jyväskylä. For more information on air connections, please see Finnair.

There is a possibility of taking a bus directly from the Helsinki-Vantaa airport to Jyväskylä, but this option is not particularly fast. To see bus connections, refer to Matkahuolto.

To get to the city centre from the Helsinki-Vantaa airport, bus number 615 connects the airport and the central railway station. Bus number 61 connects the airport and Tikkurila railway station, situated to the north of Helsinki.

From these locations, a Pendolino train will transport you to Jyväskylä in approcimately three hours. For more information on train connections, please see the VR website.

The prices of both train and bus connections between Helsinki and Jyväskylä are around 50 euro in each direction.

If you arrive by air, connections between the local airport and the city are only offered by taxi services, and no bus connection is available. To call for a cab from the airport, use the number +358 10 06900. A regular price from the airport to city centre is around 40 euro.
