Finnair opens fast route to the heart of Stockholm


In August, Finnair will open a new, fast connection from Helsinki to Stockholm. Instead of Arlanda Airport, passengers can choose Bromma Airport, which is situated close to downtown Stockholm and the Kista business area, where many international companies are located.



“The new, fast connection will best serve business passengers who travel often between Helsinki and Stockholm. Bromma Airport is very efficient. It's possible to check in 15 minutes before departure, which shortens the overall travel time,” explains Finnair's Vice President Network Strategy and Traffic Planning Petteri Kostermaa. 


Finnair will fly to Bromma twice per day Monday-Friday and once on Sunday. The fast connection will open on 18 August. In addition to Finnair, the company's Danish partner Sun-Air will begin a daily service on the route. The cooperation of Finnair and Sun-Air also offers Swedish customers excellent connections to Asia. 


In addition to the Bromma route, Finnair flies 50 flights per week between Helsinki and Arlanda. Until 1962 Finnair's Stockholm flights landed at Bromma, before Arlanda Airport opened and international traffic was transferred there. 


Bromma applies very strict environmental and noise restrictions, which set high demands on the aircraft using the airport. Finnair will fly the Bromma route with modern Embraer aircraft.
