Finnair to open up routes to Umeå, Luleå, Norrköping and Visby in Sweden

Finnair (Helsinki) 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 centers 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.
