The reason for the passenger decline from 2006 to 2009 was mainly the opening of the new railway shortcut Lahti–Kerava in September 2006. The shortcut shortened the travel time to Helsinki and caused the closure of the Helsinki route. In March 2010, Ryanair started flights to Lappeenranta, its second destination in Finland after Tampere. AirBaltic flew to Lappeenranta from November 2009 to January 2014.
