Finnair has announced additional flights to some of Scandinavia’s most enchanting summer destinations in a move set to delight travellers from Southeast Asia and India. This expansion, focusing on the peak summer season, promises to make travel to the Nordic region more accessible and convenient than ever before.
Finnair’s increased flight frequencies include ten weekly flights to Trondheim, daily flights to Bodø in Northern Norway, and services to Ivalo, Kittilä, and Kuusamo in Northern Finland. Additionally, the airline is adding service to the medieval city of Visby on Sweden’s picturesque island of Gotland, offering five weekly frequencies. These additions are not just about numbers; they represent a significant improvement in connectivity across the Nordics, with smooth transitions via Helsinki’s hub.
Why Scandinavia Shines in Summer
In summer, Scandinavia is a world apart, offering fresh air, stunning nature, and epic adventures. The region is renowned for its breathtaking landscapes, from the fjords of Norway to the midnight sun above the Arctic Circle. Bodø, set to be the European Capital of Culture in 2024, is fast becoming a must-visit destination, known for its vibrant cultural scene and stunning natural surroundings.
Finnair, Finland’s largest airline and flag carrier, is connecting Asia with Scandinavia. The airline’s recent announcement of a non-stop route to Nagoya, Japan, from Helsinki, along with more flights to Tokyo, Shanghai, and Osaka, underscores its commitment to enhancing connectivity. Moreover, Finnair’s direct flights to capitals across Southeast Asia are set to benefit significantly from these additional Nordic routes.
For travellers from Southeast Asia and India, Finnair’s expanded flight schedule offers a unique opportunity to explore the Nordic region’s summer splendours, natural beauty, and adventure in one of the world’s most captivating regions. ◼
