On Friday (May 27, 2022), Norwegian Air Shuttle announced the launch of six weekly flights between Stockholm Arlanda and Visby from June 6, 2022, ahead of Almedalen Week or ‘Politician’s Week.’ The annual Almedalen Week, considered the most important forum in Swedish politics, will take place in Almedalen Park in Visby on the Swedish island of Gotland from July 3rd through July 7th. During the event, representatives from the major political parties in Sweden hold seminars, make speeches, and engage in other political activities. The new service to Visby is Norwegian’s fourth domestic route in Sweden from Arlanda, complementing existing service to Luleå, Umeå and Kiruna.
In Friday’s announcment, Norwegian’s Commercial Manager, Magnus Thome Maursund, said,
“We look forward to starting the section between Arlanda and Visby. With six flights a week to Gotland, our travelers can easily reach one of Sweden's most beautiful islands. We are also experiencing an increased interest in Gotland from foreign travelers, who have discovered the island's fine sights. We have operated the route before with really good experiences, so we look forward to once again welcoming our passengers on board between Stockholm and Visby.”
In addition to Almedalen Week, Gotland will also host Medieval Week from August 7-14, 2022, Sweden’s largest historical festival. The event features hundreds of participants from 20 countries who recreate famous battles at the ring wall, among numerous other activities. This year the island will also be filled with musical artists who will perform concerts throughout the summer.
