Norwegian launches direct flights to Helsinki


Norwegian is strengthening its route network in the Nordic region. For the first time, Norwegian will launch direct flights from Oslo and Stockholm to Helsinki. The new direct flights are part of the strategy to become a strong player in the Nordic market.



It’s a milestone for Norwegian when we now launch 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.


The direct flights to Finland from Oslo-Gardemoen and Stockholm-Arlanda will start on the 29th of April. The tickets will be available for sale as of February 11th on

Norwegian will receive a total of 70 new state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 aircraft in the period 2008- 2014, providing the company with one of the most modern, efficient and environmentally friendly fleets in commercial aviation.
