Mariehamn Airport Facts
Mariehamn Airport is located in Jomala, Åland, Finland, some 3 kilometres north-west of Mariehamn town centre. It served 48,672 passengers in 2010 and is operated by the state owned Finavia.
The airport has a duty-free shop. Passengers can buy goods, e.g. alcohol, without VAT and other taxes. This is allowed before flying to any destination outside Åland, even to Finland. Normally local taxes must be paid in airport shops before travelling inside the EU, but Åland is outside the EU VAT area, for the very reason to allow tax-free sales onboard ferries and at the airport. Åland is in other respects a part of the EU.
