Finnair published new routes for the summer 2016. Here is the list of new destinations for flights from Helsinki Airport:
From April to the end of October, Finnair will fly to Edinburgh three times a week. Edinburgh is known for its medieval Old Town, and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, organised each August, draws visitors worldwide.
Billund in Denmark will become a year-round flight destination from April 2016 onwards. Billund is the home of the LEGOLAND theme park, which is a popular holiday destination. Billund Airport is the second largest airport in Denmark and serves an important business market in Jutland.
Finnair will be the first airline to offer scheduled international services to Svalbard, the Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. From June to August, there will be three weekly flights from Helsinki to Svalbard. Svalbard’s trump cards are untouched arctic wilderness and the rugged mountain and glacier scenery.
Finnair will start flying a new route to Croatia with two weekly flights between Helsinki and Pula in the high summer.
