Kannus - EFKN
The field is no longer active and the field has been taken out of use, the information here is for reference only!
the airport has turned into a private airfield on April 6, 2021, when the airport's official holding permit has been terminated. Operations at the airport have quieted down a lot in recent years, and maintaining the requirements of an official airport would now require significant investments. The use of the field is also affected by the wind turbine farm being built nearby. You can ask Timo Hintikka in more detail about the use of the field at 050 566 3885.
