More charter flights to see the midnight sun
Voigt Travel in the Netherlands will take more charter flights to Finland’s Rovaniemi Airport during the 2017 summer season, showing that demand is increasing to witness sights such as the midnight sun.
The Lapland travel specialist will organise summer flights from Amsterdam to Rovaniemi – normally home to Santa Claus in winter – twice a week next June and July. Voigt intends to increase the supply of trips to Lapland in the coming years, to take place also in August and September
“This is great news for tourism in Lapland. Previously we have had routes opened for the winter season, but now new routes will also be opened to Lapland’s summer,” said Joni Sundelin, senior vice president at airport operator Finavia.
Cees van den Bosch, managing director of Voigt Travel: “There is a growing interest in unspoilt and safe destinations. The demand for shorter holidays is increasing and flight-based travelling is more accepted. The northernmost part of Europe is still very far away and unknown in the perception of the European traveller, so reachability is crucial.”
The flights will operated as ‘triangle flights’, Amsterdam-Rovaniemi-Tromsø-Amsterdam, as some passengers will continue their journey from Rovaniemi to Norway.
Voigt Travel has been flying to Finland for 13 years and has experimented with summer travel before. During the upcoming 2016-17 winter season, it will operate more than 50 charter flights to airports in Lapland.
