Finnair is increasing the frequency of its service on the Helsinki-Stockholm Bromma route from the start of the airline’s winter season on November 1, as a result of the route’s popularity since Finnair began operating it on August 18.
From November 1, Finnair will increase its flights to Bromma to three per day from two. The new flight, which Finnair will operate with Embraer 170s, is particularly aimed at business travelers originating in Sweden and flying to Finland.
“The new flights will provide a more convenient service between Stockholm and Helsinki. The compact size of Bromma Airport and its location close to Stockholm city centre save the passenger time and trouble,” says Matias Sarkkinen, Finnair’s sales director, Sweden.
Finnair says it is the only airline which offers its customers the opportunity to choose from Stockholm’s two airports for flights to and from Finland, and also offers customers the option of a combination of the two airports for outbound and inbound flights.
From this winter, Finnair will be flying from Bromma to Helsinki three times per day and from Arlanda eight to nine times per day from Mondays to Fridays, thereby offering a total of 11 to 12 round-trips per day on weekdays between Helsinki and Stockholm.
The new flight, AY3192, is timed to depart from Stockholm Bromma Airport (BMA) at 7:00 a.m. and to reach Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (HEL) at 9:00 a.m. In the other direction, flight AY3191 is scheduled to leave HEL at 8:00 p.m. and land at BMA at 10.00 p.m, overnighting at BMA.
The new round-trip thereby facilitates a full business day for Swedish businesspeople traveling to Helsinki or other major Finnish business centers such as Espoo, and allows them to return to Sweden the same day.
