On Saturday, 27 May 2023, Finnair launched a new direct route from Helsinki Airport to Bodø in Norway. During the summer season, flights will be operated to the picturesque coastal town three times a week: on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

You can now get from Helsinki Airport to Norway’s spectacular nature attractions even more smoothly thanks to Finnair’s new direct route to Bodø. Bodø is an idyllic coastal town in the northern part of Norway, in Nordland county.
