Look it’s a new route! Overjoyed with the start of Norwegian flights to Pristina from Helsinki is Mikko Komi, Key Account Manager, Finavia. Norwegian will link Helsinki to the capital of Kosovo with weekly (Thursdays) flights until 10 August.
- Norwegian has expanded its route network from the capitals of Denmark and Finland this week, starting two new routes from Copenhagen (CPH) and one from Helsinki (HEL). The former has gained new connections to Preveza (PVK), which launched 20 June and will be flown weekly (Tuesdays), and Varna (VAR), a route inaugurated the following day and will operate twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Saturdays). Helsinki has welcomed the arrival of direct flights to Pristina (PRN), a 1,989-kilometre route that was launched on 22 June. While the latter service, which will operate weekly (Thursdays), faces no direct competition, Norwegian’s two new Copenhagen sectors will both challenge other carriers. The 1,951-kilometre link to Preveza will go head-to-head with Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia which offers twice-weekly flights, while the 1,753-kilometre city pairing to Varna will be contested with three airlines, with BH Air, Primera Air and Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia already serving the route, each operating weekly flights according to OAG schedules. All of Norwegian’s new services will be flown on the carrier’s fleet of 737-800s.
