Finnair is opening four new routes to Edinburgh, Billund, Pula and Svalbard for summer 2016.

Finnair will start flying to Edinburgh from April 18 to October 27, 2016.

Flights to Billund in Jutland, Denmark, will become a year round destination from April 4, 2016.

Finnair will continue to increase its Croatia service with two weekly flights between Helsinki and Pula, from June 20 to August 12, 2016.

Finnair will be the first airline to offer scheduled international services to Svalbard, the Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. From June 1 to August 27, 2016 there will be three weekly flights from Helsinki to the northernmost airport in the world. Svalbard – located between Norway and the North Pole, is a land of untouched arctic wilderness.

In summer 2016, new scheduled flights will replace previously chartered flights to the Greek islands of Zakynthos, Skiathos, Santorini, Mytilene and Preveza. The same will apply to Rimini and Verona in Italy and to Varna in Bulgaria.

Finnair will also increase the number of flights to the popular summer destinations of Malta, Tel Aviv in Israel and to Biarritz and Nice in France. Malta was a new destination this summer and there has been a high demand from Finland and Asia, so an extra weekly flight will be added for summer 2016.
