– Opening this route now is concrete step forward with the British market, which has been having little challenges this past Autumn, since we got these sad bankruptcy news from Thomas Cook. This route will bring more accessibility to Rovaniemi in the hottest time of the year in travel. The British market is still one of our most essential foundations what it comes to winter seasons and not only for Rovaniemi, but to all Lapland, says, Sanna Kärkkäinen, managing director of Visit Rovaniemi.

The first flight from Manchester landed at Rovaniemi yesterday at 7.05 pm. easyJet operates already directly from London, Gatwick to Rovaniemi two times a week, so in total, Easyjet will fly now four times a week between England and Rovaniemi.
