- Norwegian launched its latest route from Helsinki (HEL) on 4 November, a 4,001-kilometre route to Marrakech (RAK). The city pair, which will be the only direct connection between Finland and Morocco this winter, will be served weekly (Saturdays) by the LCC on its fleet of 737-800s. “We notice that there is an increasing interest among people to travel,” comments Thomas Ramdahl, Commercial Director at Norwegian. “Therefore, we are pleased that Finnish travellers can now fly directly to Marrakech from Helsinki and thus receive another direct line.” As a result of linking Helsinki to Marrakech, the airline will be offering 24 routes from its Finnish capital base at the start of W17/18. Along with the new route between Europe and Africa, Norwegian also commenced flights between Providence (PVD) and Point-a-Pitre (PTP) this week.
