Norwegian third airline flying Oslo-Helsinki

Norwegian Air Shuttle will start non-stop flights from Oslo and Stockholm to Helsinki, Finland from April 29th. It will be the third air carrier with direct connection to the Finnish capital.

Both Finnair and Scandinavian Airlines are currently flying from Stockholm and Oslo.

These new direct flights to Finland are a natural part of Norwegian Air Shuttle's strategy to strengthen its position in the Scandinavian flight market.

Managing Director Bjørn Kjos, claims that the air fare to Finland is too high and that the Norwegian Air Shuttle may offer cheaper tickets for business and leisure travelers than its competitors.

Ticket sale will start from March 11th and prices will start at NOK 299 one way from Oslo, and SEK 349 from Stockholm.
