Tampere-Pirkkala Airport is located in Pirkkala, 7 NM south-west of Tampere city centre. The airport is the third busiest airport in Finland, as measured by the number of passengers (617,713 in 2010), and the second busiest airport in Finland, as measured by the number of international passengers (526,401 in 2010). Tampere-Pirkkala is also one of Finland's fastest growing airports, having increased its annual passenger numbers from 256,380 in 2000 to 632,010 in 2006. Most of this growth can be attributed to Ryanair's low cost flights to and from a number of destinations in Central and Western Europe.

The airport is also home to the Satakunta Air Command base of the Finnish Air Force, with F-18 Hornets stationed there.
