New winter sun and snow destinations in Sweden, Finland, Italy, Croatia and Romania take off at Stansted Airport
Ryanair has added seven new routes to its winter schedule from Stansted Airport, including three Scandinavian destinations.
The Irish low-budget company has launched daily flights to Stockholm in Sweden and Helsinki in Finland, and twice a week to Tampere, also in Finland.
The new routes join a growing list of Nordic destinations, including daily flights to Oslo in Norway and Copenhagen in Denmark with Ryanair, and PLAY Airlines’ daily traffic to Iceland’s capital Reykjavik.
Neringa Ohrstrom, Head of Airport Marketing, said: “After 18 very challenging months for the aviation sector, it is fantastic to see airlines launching new exciting routes from London Stansted this winter.
“We know that there is a strong demand in eastern England for flights to northern Europe. The new services to Helsinki, Stockholm and Tampere are perfect additions to the excellent network of Nordic destinations we already fly to in Norway, Denmark and Iceland.”
In addition, Ryanair has added new routes to Trapani and Treviso in Italy, Zagreb in Croatia and Oradea in Romania this winter.
Stansted’s second largest airline, Jet2.com, has added extra services to the Canary Islands for the winter sunshine, while skiers and snowboarders can hop on the airline’s new route to Chambery in the French Alps.
The aviation and holiday specialist will fly to five ski destinations this season, including Geneva in Switzerland, Grenoble in France and the Austrian cities of Innsbruck and Salzburg.
