Baku, Azerbaijan to Turku is an approximately 15-hour flight. Traveling from Baku to Turku, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Baku in September, with highs in Turku at 18°C and lows at 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Helsinki.
