Edelweiss expands winter services to Finland and Norway

• Extended season to Ivalo and Kuusamo

• New scheduled flights to Kittilä and Rovaniemi

• Evenes/Lofoten now also in winter

Following the successful launch last winter, Edelweiss is significantly extending the season to Finnish Lapland in the 2024/2025 winter timetable. The destinations Kuusamo and Ivalo will now be served from mid-December until the beginning and end of March respectively. Kuusamo will be served on Fridays, while Ivalo will now be served twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays.

For the first time, Edelweiss is also offering scheduled flights to Kittilä and Rovaniemi, both destinations will be served twice a week from mid-December to the end of March. There will be flights to Kittilä on Monday and Wednesday and to Rovaniemi on Monday and Thursday. In addition, Edelweiss will continue to operate a charter flight to Kittilä and Rovaniemi every Saturday on behalf of Kontiki Reisen.

Norway fans can also rejoice: Flights to Evenes are now also available in the winter timetable, with flights every Saturday from mid-December to the end of March. Evenes is the ideal starting point for exploring the breathtaking island paradise of Lofoten - an archipelago with more than 80 islands. In addition to the Lofoten Islands, the region around Evenes has much more to offer: The town of Narvik is an ideal starting point for unforgettable experiences in the north and the Vesterålen islands - although slightly less well-known than the Lofoten islands - are just as impressive.

With the six destinations Evenes/Lofoten, Tromsø, Kittilä, Rovaniemi, Ivalo and Kuusamo, Edelweiss offers a comprehensive and attractive portfolio in northern Scandinavia in the 2024/25 winter timetable. The individual destinations can be combined with each other as part of a round trip. The additional flights can be booked on all channels from Thursday, 9 May 2024.
