Finnair to boost Lapland flights in spring

More than 90 additional flights during spring 2017
Finnair says it will lay on more flights to Kittilä, Ivalo and Kuusamo in Finnish Lapland during the spring ski season from March 26 to May 2 next year.
This will mean that the number of seats available during that period will rise by 15,000 from the previous year, with over 90 more flights.
One of the reasons being given is Easter falling in mid-April in 2017, which will make the ski season longer in Lapland.
Finnair will operate 59 flights from Helsinki to Ivalo via Kittilä during the above period. There will also be: 16-20 non-stop flights to Kittilä on weeks 13-15, ten on week 16 and three on week 17; “approximately ten” non-stop flights to Ivalo on weeks 13-15 and six on week 16; and 11 non-stop flights to Kuusamo on weeks 13-15, seven on week 16 and six on week 17.
The airline says the schedules will vary slightly between the weeks. Some of the flights will mainly cater to Finnish travellers, while others will offer smoother connections to passengers on Finnair’s European and Asian flights in Helsinki.
Finnair will also continue flights from Tampere and Turku to Kittilä until April 15.
