Flybe has announced the route plans of the recently founded Flybe Nordic, which it jointly owns with Finnair.
Flybe Nordic, which uses the Flybe brand and is managed operationally by Flybe, will fly routes formerly operated by FinnComm as well as many new routes, thereby strengthening its position in the Nordic countries and the Baltic area. The new routes will also complement feeder traffic to Finnair’s international connections.
The new routes will be flown as codeshare flights and will thus be included in Finnair’s flight schedules. Finnair Plus customers can accumulate frequent-flyer points on the Flybe Nordic flights.
From Helsinki, Flybe Nordic will operate services to Kemi/Tornio, Kokkola/Pietarsaari, Pori, Savonlinna, Seinäjoki, Varkaus, Enontekiö, Norrköping, Skelleftea, Gdansk, Mariehamn, Tartu, Trondheim and Umeå.
Flights from Tallinn will operate to Vaasa, Oulu, Turku, Tampere and Stockholm (Bromma). Tampere will also have services to Kittilä and Kuusamo.
Flight from Kittilä to Seinäjoki and Turku and between Kokkola/Pietarsaari and Skelleftea complete the initial batch of routes.
