National Flag carrier Finnair will open new routes between Helsinki and Bergen and Tromsø in Norway in May 2018, said a press release.
The routes will be operated by Norwegian regional airline Wideroe, and the flights will be sold and marketed by Finnair. The onboard service will be based on the Finnair dual class service concept.
As of May 15, 2018, Wideroe will operate the Finnair flight from Bergen to Helsinki daily, with a brand-new Embraer 190-E2 aircraft. The flight’s schedule will connect to Finnair’s Asian flights as well as to Finnair’s European network. Finnair also continues to fly to Bergen via Stockholm.
The flight between Tromsø in northern Norway and Helsinki takes place once a week on Saturdays.
“We are excited to offer new direct flights to Bergen and Tromsø. The Nordics are attracting more and more travelers, and we believe our Asian customers will appreciate these additions to our extensive network,” said Juha Järvinen, Chief Commercial Officer of Finnair.
