Helsinki airport winter flights to Lapland open with the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup
Traffic from Helsinki Airport to Lapland will increase for the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup to be held on the weekend. In addition to Finnair’s daily flights Blue1 opened its Kittilä route on 6 November. The airline will launch routes to other Lapland destinations in the beginning of December.
The glittering snows of Lapland are only an hour’s flight away from Helsinki
“That leaves you with a lot more time for downhill and cross-country skiing when you arrive. Passengers should now take advantage of the low fares,” says Finavia Sales Manager Thomas Kingelin.
The popularity and accessibility of the Far North is evident in Helsinki Airport’s flight offerings.
Passengers will have more choices when Blue1 begins its winter service in November-December. Flights to Kittilä will begin on 6 November. Blue1 will begin service to Kuusamo on 29 November, to Rovaniemi on 4 December and Ivalo on 6 December. It will fly to all four Lapland destinations until April 2010.
In addition to Blue1, Finnair offers flights from Helsinki Airport to Kittilä, Kuusamo, Rovaniemi and Ivalo throughout the year. Finncomm Airlines flies to Enontekiö from February to May.
