Eurowings and Air France will start direct flights from Düsseldorf and Paris to Kittila in December

– We are happy that both Air France and Eurowings are expanding their flight offer to Kittilä! Last year’s lively winter season and 2019’s higher number of charter flights showed that tourism in Lapland continues to grow, says Jani JolkkonenDirector of Finavia Airport Networks.

Airlines have noticed an increase in demand from Central Europe to Finnish Lapland. Last winter’s international visitors from Central Europe to Levi were, according to the overnight stay register, the most from Great Britain, France and the Netherlands. In addition to visitors from Great Britain and Germany who have traveled for a long time, interest also increased among the Dutch, Belgians and Spaniards. In addition to the German-speaking population, the regional sphere of influence of Düsseldorf also includes the Belgians and the Dutch.

– We welcome these new international connections, as they help smooth out the seasonal changes in winter and support the journey towards year-round tourism. Finns always go on vacation at the same time, so we want to attract international guests during these times. The international guests we host during the interim periods are also a new and different target group for whom we have a lot to offer here in the north. It’s great to see Lapland’s appeal in practice with increased scheduled flights. Kittilä airport not only serves the region’s ski resorts, such as Levi and Yllä, but also visitors traveling to Muonio and Enontekiö, says Fairy tale PesonenCEO of Visit Levi.

Kittilä is in an excellent location in terms of accessibility, because during the coming winter season direct flights from Central Europe will be operated not only by Eurowings and Air France, but also by Lufthansa and AirBaltic, which have flown to Kittilä in the past. The airlines’ routes will continue due to good demand and both airlines will fly once a week on Saturdays 17.12. from AirBaltic flies from Riga to Kittila until March 11, and Lufthansa from Munich to Kittila until March 25.

Continuity is also sought for all existing international routes, for example for the next summer and autumn season, to better serve the year-round goal of the north.
