Finnair launching ‘Arctic Express’ service

Wednesday, 28 Aug, 2023 0

Finnair is set to launch a new ‘Arctic Express’ service later this year.

It will operate Lapland flights from Helsinki to Rovaniemi and to Tromso, the gateway to the Northern Lights.

Aimed at enhancing Arctic connections, the new route will be the only direct connection between Rovaniemi and Tromsø.

Flights will operate twice per week from 2 December.

Services will depart Helsinki each Thursday and Saturday, linking Rovaniemi and Tromso round trip.

International customers will also benefit from the new service, being able to fly into Helsinki and add stopovers in the Arctic’s top two destinations.

Antti Tolvanen, Finnair SVP Network & Revenue Management, said: “With this new connection, visitors to the Arctic region can conveniently combine both Lapland and Northern Norway in one trip.”

Flights on the new route will be operated by 68-seater ATR aircraft.

Currently, Finnair offers flights to 14 destinations within Finland and five in Norway.

This winter, Finnair offers up to 10 daily direct flights from Helsinki to Rovaniemi, in addition to a separate daily service to Tromso.

Flights have been timed to allow for easy connections from top UK airports, London Heathrow, Manchester, Edinburgh and from Dublin.
