British Airways will open a new route from London Heathrow to Tromsø this winter. The route will have two weekly flights from December 1st to March 27th.

“This route also connects Tromsø to the largest oneworld Alliance hub in Europe. The North American market in particular, will now have good accessibility to Tromsø with British Airways’ new route.

Ulv Elbirk, Traffic Developer at Avinor says: “This will benefit the tourism industry in Tromsø, with more well-paying American visitors to Tromsø, as well as resourceful Britons,” .

“The inclusion of Tromsø in the British Airways portfolio demonstrates that Northern Norway has become an attractive destination for airlines and proves how the city has established itself as a solid winter destination in Europe.

The route will be operated with an A320neo aircraft to and from British Airways’ main terminal Heathrow Terminal 5, with efficient connections to the rest of the world.

Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Chief Planning and Strategy Officer says: “We are excited to welcome Tromsø to our route network – it is a growing winter leisure market thanks to its abundance of cold-weather activities, and we’ll be the only premium carrier operating there from the UK.

“We’ve optimised the schedule for three- and four-night trips, which we know are perfect for a destination like this.”
