Lufthansa aims at the far north Nordics

Airline starts new flights to the Northern Lights
Lufthansa launched on Saturday a new route between its Frankfurt hub and Tromsø in northern Norway – the northernmost destination the airline has ever flown to.
Flight LH870 took off in Frankfurt at 09:35 and turned north, landing at Tromsø-Langnes at 13:00 local time. The return flight departed Tromsø at 14:00, arriving in Frankfurt at 17:25.
Taking about three hours and 25 minutes, the flight is one of the longest in the airline’s European network. It is being operated once a week until March 25 on an Airbus A319.
Lufthansa is also flying a new route from Frankfurt to Ivalo in Finland once a week, in addition to an existing route to Kittilä in Finland, twice weekly from Munich.
Lufthansa is marketing the route by saying that Tromsø, 350 km to the north of the Arctic Circle, is “the perfect place for taking in the spectacular natural wonder of the legendary Aurora Borealis. Outdoor enthusiasts come to Tromsø because it is just a stone’s throw from unspoiled nature, offering travellers a wide range of activities including fishing, whale watching and dog-sledding.” It also mentions the world’s northernmost botanical garden and Tromsø’s aquarium.
