We will operate three reciprocal flights to Rovaniemi, one of the most popular winter tourism destinations due to being a premier location to witness the northern lights.

As it is located on the northern polar line, Rovaniemi is considered one of the best locations to witness the northern lights. The variety of its winter activities and its premier location to experience northern lights makes Rovaniemi one of the most popular winter tourism destinations while it offers different options to its guests from all over the world with eco-friendly glass igloos and ice hotels.
