Abstract: Minimal areas for certain classes of finitely connected complete open surfaces are obtained by using a Bonnesen-style isoperimetric inequality for large balls on the surfaces. In particular, the minimal area of Riemannian planes whose Gaussian curvatures are bounded above by 1 is $ 4\pi $.
