Stansted flies north

London’s most northerly airport (marginally over Luton), Stansted, has added a host of new destinations to its departure boards this winter, including three routes to Scandinavia.

With the winter 2021/22 flight programme this week, Ryanair, Stansted’s biggest airline, has launched daily flights to Stockholm (Sweden) and Helsinki (Finland), and twice-weekly services to Tampere (Finland).

The new routes join a growing list of Nordic destinations already within easy reach of the airport, including Oslo (Norway), Copenhagen (Denmark) with Ryanair, and PLAY Airlines’ daily service to Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik.

In addition, Ryanair has added new routes to Trapani and Treviso (Italy), Zagreb (Croatia) and Oradea (Romania) this winter.

Stansted’s second-biggest carrier, Jet2.com, has put on extra services to the Canary Islands for people looking to enjoy some winter sunshine.

For those wishing to head to the slopes, skiers and snowboarders will be able to enjoy even more choice from their local airport with the airline’s new route to Chambery in the Alps.

The flight and holiday specialist will now fly to five ski destinations this season including Geneva, Grenoble, Innsbruck, Salzburg, and the new route to Chambery.
