Finnair launches Helsinki-Visby route

Finnair is returning to Sweden’s Visby Airport with the launch of a route connecting with Helsinki in late June.

From 24 June to 1 August the service will operate three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, with an ATR 72 being the metal of choice.

Swedavia Visby Airport airport director Gunnar Jonasson said: “We are pleased that Finnair is resuming summer service between Visby Airport and Helsinki.

“There is great interest in Gotland among people in Finland as well as many Gotland residents who have relatives in Finland.

“A direct route creates opportunities to visit friends and family in a convenient way and is an excellent opportunity for people in Gotland to get to Finland and vice versa.

“We are cautiously optimistic since the vaccine rollout, the pandemic and travel restrictions are critical to the recovery both in Sweden elsewhere in the world. We hope the situation will allow this and that our passengers are ready to travel again this summer.”
