Low-cost airline Norwegian expands in Finland


The airline Norwegian opens a Finnish base at Helsinki Airport. At the same time it introduces two domestic routes and expands the current international offer from two to eleven. Three aircraft will be based in Helsinki.


The new Finnish routes include Helsinki-Oulu and Helsinki-Rovaniemi. Four daily flights will serve the Helsinki-Oulu route and one daily flight will operate between Helsinki and Rovaniemi. The first flight departs March 31, 2011.


In addition to the direct flights to Olso and Stockholm Norwegian launched last spring, it introduces nine new international destinations departing from Helsinki Airport in spring 2011: Copenhagen, Malaga, Nice, Crete (Chania), Rome, Barcelona, London Gatwick, Split and Alicante. The routes start in early to mid May.


Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday October 6. Prices start at €29 to domestic destinations as well as to Central Europe. The longer routes to Southern Europe start at €59.


"Norwegian entered the Finnish market in April, and after a mere five months our Helsinki-Oslo and Helsinki-Stockholm routes have proven to be a great success. We believe that both the Finnish business and leisure travellers are ready for more fares that everyone can afford to both domestic and international destinations" said Norwegian's CEO, Bjørn Kjos.


As the second largest airline in Scandinavia and the third largest low lost airline in Europe, Norwegian serves a total of 238 routes to 93 destinations both domestic and international.
