New routes open today from Stockholm and Oslo to Helsinki


Today Norwegian opened its new direct flights from Stockholm and Oslo to Helsinki, with prices from 27 Euros one way. Norwegian consequently becomes the first low-cost airline to fly these routes.



By lowering the prices for flights to and from Helsinki, Norwegian becomes an affordable option for both business and leisure travelers.


It's a milestone for Norwegian when we today launched our first direct flights to Finland. The Nordic region is a natural focus area for us. We see that there is an opening for a new player as today's prices are too high. With our new routes, both business and leisure travellers will get value for their money, said Norwegians CEO Bjørn Kjos.


Norwegian's new connections from Stockholm and Oslo to Helsinki Airport will increase the capacity considerably and offer new alternatives of travel to Sweden and Norway. We warmly welcome Norwegian to Helsinki Airport and Finland, said Juha-Pekka Pystynen, Senior Vice President and Director of Helsinki Airport.


The new flights to Helsinki represent a milestone for Norwegian since they tie most of the capitals of the Nordic countries together.


The time table for the two routes is adapted for the business traveler with two daily flights on weekdays – morning and evening. From Arlanda to Helsinki there are also two flights on Sundays and one on Saturdays and from Gardemoen to Helsinki one flight departing on Sundays.


Finnish travelers can now travel onwards with Norwegian to approx. 90 destinations in Europe, Middle East and North Africa, through Stockholm or Oslo.
