Finnair announced that it is increasing the number of flights to the Arctic Circle to cater to customers who want to cool off and avoid the summer heat.

Extra capacity is being offered by the airline to Finland, Norway, and Sweden during the peak travel season from June to September in response to the growing demand for cooler destinations.

Finnair will be reinstating its route to the Norwegian city of Bodø, which was a success when it was launched last summer. Bodø, one of the European Capitals of Culture 2024, offers customers seeking a unique cultural experience the opportunity to visit and explore.

From June 17, 2024 to August 2, 2024, there will be five flights per week to the small city, which is more than the three flights per week available last summer. These additional flights are scheduled to align with the enchantment of the midnight sun.

Finnair will continue to be the sole airline providing scheduled international flights to the city, which will host over 1,000 performances, concerts, and art exhibitions during its year-long celebration.

Starting in 2024, the airline plans to enhance its highly sought-after route from Helsinki to Trondheim by increasing the frequency of flights to 10 times per week.

Due to the growing demand for popular summer destinations, the airline in Finland is expanding its flight routes from Helsinki to Ivalo, Kittilä, and Kuusamo in Northern Finland.

Finnair is the sole airline that provides flights to Finnish Lapland throughout the year from its hub in Helsinki, allowing customers to witness the midnight sun and indulge in Finland’s untamed nature and diverse wildlife.

Due to its popularity as a summer destination, the frequency of summer flights to the medieval city of Visby on the island of Gotland in Sweden will be increased to five times per week, across the Baltic Sea.

Acording to Pasi Kuusisto, Finnair’s North America General Manager, the increasing demand for travel within the Arctic Circle during the summer months has motivated this expansion of summer services in the Nordic home market. These new services are expected to be well-received by US customers seeking to escape the heat and discover thrilling experiences. Additionally, Finnair is delighted to resume operations in Bodø, Norway, a route that garnered positive feedback from customers last summer. This return coincides with Bodø’s celebration as a European Capital of Culture in 2024.
