Finnair opens a new route to Trondheim in cooperation with Wideroe, adds flights to Tromso
Finnair continues to expand its network in the Nordics and opens a new year-round route to Trondheim in Norway in June 2019. Finnair also adds flights to another popular destination, Tromso, in Norway.
Trondheim is Norway’s third largest city, known for its breathtaking scenery. It offers excellent opportunities for nature activities such as hiking or hunting for Northern Lights, as well as a vibrant restaurant scene.
The route will be operated by Norwegian regional airline Wideroe five days a week, with a Bombardier Dash-8 Q400 aircraft, and the flights are sold and marketed by Finnair. The service concept onboard will include both Business and Economy Class, and the flight’s schedule will connect to Finnair’s Asian flights as well as to Finnair’s European network.
Finnair also adds flights to Tromso in Norway, in collaboration with Wideroe, and as of June 4, will offer flights between Tromso and Helsinki three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, year-round. Tromso 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.
“We are excited to add Trondheim to our network, and to increase flights to Tromso”, says Christian Lesjak, Senior Vice President, Network and Resource Management. ”The Nordics are attractive especially for our Asian customers. Our new Trondheim route offers the region excellent opportunities to grow as a travel destination, and also connects the region’s leisure and business travelers to our vast network of destinations in Europe and Asia.”
