Brussels Airlines Signs Three Year Agreement With NORDIC for Scandinavian Travel
Brussels Airlines has signed a three-year agreement with NORDIC, the market leader in Scandinavia, providing direct flight to four destinations in the Lapland and Southern Norway for the summer and winter seasons.
On Tuesday (March 30, 2021), Brussels Airlines announced the signing of a new three-year agreement with NORDIC, the market leader in Scandinavian travel. Under the agreement, the carrier will offer direct service to four destinations in the Lapland and Southern Norway during the summer and winter seasons. The first flight will take place on July 4, 2021 to Evenes in the north of Norway (Lofoten), with one joint weekly flight planned for the summer holidays, a first to the destination from Brussels Airport. During the winter season, Brussels Airlines will add service to the southern Norwegian destinations of Kittilӓ, Kiruna and Bergen.
In Tuesday’s announcement, Lufthansa Group’s Senior Director of Sales for Belgium, Frederic Dechamps, said,
“I am very pleased with the extension of our partnership with Nordic, which allows us to confirm Lapland as part of our destination portfolio. This step confirms a mutual commitment to a long-term cooperation with a partner of choice, a well-established specialist on these wonderful destinations.”
Also commenting on the new long-term agreement, NORDIC’s Founder and CEO, Maarten Raes, added,
“What started in 2016-2017 with 5 flights from Brussels to Kittilä (Finland) and Tromsø, has grown to an offer of 71 flights per year. During the summer holidays of this year, we will start a weekly flight to Lofoten in northern Norway. The winter season offers flights to Kittilä in Finnish Lapland, Kiruna in Swedish Lapland as well as Bergen in Norway. Together with Brussels Airlines, we aim to increase the number of flights and destinations significantly in the coming years. In order to provide sufficient capacity locally as well, we are working together with local entrepreneurs to be able to offer our customers the best products available.
“During winter, we are working with a number of lodges that can be booked exclusively through Nordic. The offer includes 5 small-scale and very high quality lodges including Aurora Mountain lodge in the middle of the Swedish high mountains, Valkea Lodge in the Finnish forests, Pinetree Lodge on a lake in the Swedish forests, Arctic River Lodge on a beautiful ice river and Lapland View Lodge on top of a hill. Each one a unique gem and only bookable via Nordic and with a direct flight to Lapland.”
Service to Kittilӓ, one of the top destinations in the Finnish Lapland, will operate weekly from December 18th through April 9, 2021. Flights to Kiruna will operate during the beginning and end of winter, while four flights are planned for Bergen during February and March. Flights to Evenes will be offered weekly for summer 2021, providing travel restrictions to Norway are lifted.
