Finnair will open new routes between Helsinki and Bergen and Tromsø in Norway in May 2018, connecting the regions to Finnair’s extensive Asian network.

The routes will be operated by Norwegian regional airline Wideroe, and the flights are sold and marketed by Finnair. The onboard service will be based on the Finnair dual class service concept.

As of May 15, 2018, Wideroe will operate the Finnair flight from Bergen to Helsinki daily, with a brand-new Embraer 190-E2 aircraft. The flight’s schedule will connect to Finnair’s Asian flights as well as to Finnair’s European network. Finnair also continues to fly to Bergen via Stockholm.

Bergen is the second largest city in Norway, located by the Atlantic coast and surrounded by seven mountains. The city is known for its small-town charm, breathtaking scenery and ideal opportunities for exploring the beautiful fjords of Norway.

The flight between Tromsø in northern Norway and Helsinki takes place once a week on Saturdays, with the schedule connecting to Finnair’s Asian flights as well as European flights.

Tromsø is situated 350 kilometers north of the Arctic circle, and is famous for its artic nature, the northern lights and a wide variety of outdoor activities ranging from hiking to whale watching.

Both Bergen and Tromsø are ports for the popular Hurtigruten cruises along the Norwegian coastline.

“We are excited to offer new direct flights to Bergen and Tromsø. The Nordics are attracting more and more travelers, and we believe our Asian customers will appreciate these additions to our extensive network, says Juha Järvinen, Chief Commercial Officer for Finnair.

The new flights also offer Finnair's customers in Norway new connections to Asian cities and  European destinations via Helsinki Airport.
