Nextjet to fly Helsinki-Västerås

Route to benefit business travellers and Finnish-born Swedes
Sweden’s biggest regional airline Nextjet will begin flights between Västerås and Helsinki on September 15. Ticket sales on the airline’s website will open at the end of July.
“Västerås Airport is situated in the Mälaren region, where many Finnish-born people reside,” explained Henning Lindberg, Nextjet’s sales and marketing chief. “They will now have an easy connection with Helsinki and the rest of Finland.”
He continued: “At the same time, there exists a major business and industry community in the region, with many international connections. These will now be able to shorten their travel time by several hours.”
The new connection serves travellers and the business community in the Mälaren region also onwards to Asia, as HEL has some of the best long-haul connections in northern Europe.
The route will be operated by three flights daily Monday to Friday, one flight on Saturdays and two flights on Sundays. The type of aircraft will be an ATP with seating for 68 passengers. The route is operated in cooperation with Finnair and Mälardalen’s Chamber of Commerce.
