In November 2023, Easyjet will start direct scheduled flights from Kittilä Airport to Manchester and London Gatwick Airport in the UK. Both routes will be operated twice a week during the winter season 2023–2024.
Finavia's route selection at Lapland airports will be further improved for the winter when Easyjet opens direct connections from Kittilä Airport to Manchester and London Gatwick Airport in November.
"The new routes are very welcome additions to the comprehensive route offering at our airports. In addition to Kittilä, Easyjet will open five new winter season routes to Rovaniemi Airport in December. We are happy that the work we are doing for Finland's accessibility is bearing fruit in this way," says Petri Vuori, Finavia's Director of Route Development.
Easyjet will open the Kittilä–Manchester route on 16 November 2023. The route is operated twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Flights from Kittilä to London Gatwick will start on 25 November 2023. Easyjet operates the route twice a week on Thursdays and Sundays.
"The opening of new scheduled flights is a strong signal that Finnish Lapland is attracting an even wider international customer base. People from Great Britain no longer only come to Lapland to meet Santa Claus and see the Northern Lights, but also many other experiences and winter hobbies and activities are of interest to international travellers, says Satu Pesonen, CEO of Visit Levi.
You can book your flight on the Easyjet website. Tickets for flights to Manchester and London go on sale on July 13.
