Norwegian launches routes to Riga and Paris from Stockholm and Helsinki
Norwegian launched two new routes in the last week. On 19 April, the low-cost airline connected its Stockholm Arlanda (ARN) base with Riga (RIX). Flights operate three times weekly, competing with airBaltic’s thrice-daily flights between the Swedish and Latvian capitals. Indirect competition also comes from Ryanair’s five weekly flights from Stockholm Skavsta to Riga. The following day, the 737-800 operator Norwegian expanded its Helsinki (HEL) base, launching three weekly flights to Paris Orly (ORY). Indirect competition between the Finnish and French capitals comes from Finnair’s five daily flights to Paris CDG.
