New Swedish Routes
Finnair opens new routes to Sweden, and will fly daily to Luleå and Umeå on the coast of the Gulf of Bothnia during the summer season 2015 connecting these growing centres to Finnair's wide network of destinations in Asia, Europe and North America with daily frequencies.
Located by the Baltic Sea, Umeå is the largest city in northern Sweden, with a growing population and vibrant cultural life. Also by the Baltic Sea, Luleå is one of Sweden’s northernmost cities, with a long history in steel manufacturing and technical know-how.
Finnair is also taking over routes previously marketed by Flybe Finland from Helsinki to Visby on Gotland Island and to Norrköping in central Sweden.
Visby is known for its well-preserved medieval city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and its beautiful scenery and historical attractions make it an ideal summer holiday destination. Norrköping is a lively city in central Sweden, and the host of Sweden’s largest music festival. Finnair flies to Norrköping daily, and to Visby three times per week during the summer season.
Finnair also operates several daily frequencies to Stockholm and Gothenburg.
New Polish Route
Starting 11 May 2015 Finnair opens a daily service to Gdansk, Poland. A charming and historic port on the Baltic coast, Gdansk is an ideal city break destination, and also a gateway to the nearby spa and beach town of Sopot.
The service will be sold with Finnair’s flight number, and it will be operated by Flybe Finland with ATR 72-aircraft. The new destination offers better connections from Finland to Poland, and for Polish passengers good connections to Finnair’s destinations in Asia.
In addition to Gdansk, in Poland Finnair flies to Warsaw year-round and to Krakow from 2 April until 22 October 2015.
