Finnair to introduce flight to Bergen this summer

Finnair will launch a new summer flight to the Norwegian city of Bergen

Finnair will launch a new summer flight to the Norwegian city of Bergen on May 22nd.

The new flight will operate daily apart from Wednesdays and Sundays and will go some way towards satisfying high tourism demand for Norway from Asia.

Finnair vice-president for route strategy and traffic planning Petteri Kostermaa said that there was also interested in the flight from the US and southern European countries.

A Finnair statement said: "For Finns, too, the new route offers a fast and convenient way of reaching Norway’s number one tourist destination."

Bergen is famous for its fish restaurants and cafes and is easily explored on foot. It is Norway’s second-largest city and also serves as a busy trading port.

Norway’s fjords are close to the city and are accessible via the Hurtigruten cruise ship.

Finnair’s other Norwegian flight operates to the capital, Oslo, five times a day on weekdays and three times daily over the weekend.

The airline’s flight from Helsinki to London Heathrow moved from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 last month.
