    The shortest travel time from Oulu Railway Station to Helsinki Central Railway Station is 5 h 44 mins, operated by VR. There are also night trains with beds taking 8-11 hours; the newest night train cars are double deckers and have showers and toilets in the cabins. Other destinations include, for instance, Kolari, Rovaniemi, Seinäjoki and Tampere.

    The Oulu Railway Station is located in the centre of Oulu in the city district of Vaara. Nearby is the bus station for long-distance buses.

    The railway station was built in 1886 when the Ostrobothnia railway line reached Oulu.

    Air

    by PapPa_74 Updated Aug 18, 2006

    Oulu is served by Oulu Airport, the second biggest airport in Finland by passenger volume. There are non-stop scheduled flights to Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (around 18 daily flights with Finnair and Blue1), Stockholm-Arlanda Airport (1 daily with Blue1) and Rovaniemi Airport (1 daily with Finnair) as well as charter flights to Southern Europe, Canary Isles and starting from next winter, to Phuket in Thailand.

    Oulu Airport (IATA: OUL, ICAO: EFOU) is located in Oulunsalo, Finland, about 15 kilometres south-west of Oulu city centre. The airport is the second busiest in Finland after Helsinki-Vantaa airport, as measured by the number of passengers (around 810,000 in 2005) and the amount of freight transported. There are more than a dozen daily flights to Helsinki and one daily flight to Stockholm (Sweden). Oulu airport is also extensively used by Finnish Air Forces for training purposes. Recently the old terminal was demolished for more apron space. A major extension of the main terminal (mainly jetbridges) is scheduled for 2007. The managing body of the airport is Finavia.
