British Airways announces winter flights to Tromsø, Norway

Tromso
Tromso, Norway

British Airways introduces its first-ever flight to Tromsø, Norway, offering a unique opportunity to witness the northern lights and engage in Arctic winter sports, starting December 2024.

British Airways will launch its first ever flight to Tromsø, Norway, this winter. Operating from 1 December 2024, Tromsø will become the airline’s most northernly destination globally and is available for customers to book now.

The Norwegian city is known as being one of the best places in the world to see the aurora borealis, thanks to its central position in the northern lights’ oval. With average winter temperatures ranging from 0°C to -5°C, the destination’s abundant snowfall also lends itself to winter activities including skiing, mountaineering and whale watching.

This winter wonderland, which is in the Arctic Circle, is also a popular destination for those who enjoy exploring Christmas markets. The city’s most picturesque market and its Christmas tree is located in the main square, Stortorget.

Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Chief Planning and Strategy Officer, said: “Those who missed the northern lights in the UK need not worry! We are excited to welcome Tromsø to our route network – it is a growing winter leisure market thanks to its abundance of cold-weather activities and we’ll be the only premium carrier operating there from the UK. We’ve optimised the schedule for three- and four-night trips, which we know are perfect for a destination like this.”

Customers looking for holiday packages can enjoy a wide selection from British Airways Holidays, which include deposits from just £60pp, flexible payment options, ATOL protection, a 24-hour helpline and 23kg baggage allowance as standard. For example:

Return flights will run twice a week until 27 March 2025. Customers can take skiing or snowboarding equipment as part of their checked baggage so long as the bag is within 190 x 75 x 65cm.
