Lufthansa has announced the launch of new nonstop flights to the largest winter sports centre in Finland, for the first time.
Germany’s largest airline will depart from Munich from December 19, 2015 every Saturday on course for Kittilä, with the nearby ski resort of Levi.
The airline will depart Munich at 09:00am, arriving into Lapland at 13:25pm every week, while the return flight will depart Finland at 14:55pm, arriving back into Munich at 17:15pm.
Service to Kittilä will run throughout the winter period, terminating on March 26, 2016, and will be operated with an Airbus A320 with 168 seats in a two-class configuration.
“In Kittilä we are offering our customers an exclusive winter destination for the first time. The ski resort is an Eldorado for enthusiastic winter sport fans,” says Thomas Klühr, Member of the Lufthansa Passenger Board Finances & Hub Munich.
The 09:00am departure from Munich will allow passengers ideal connections from domestic German and European airports.
Levi has already been voted as the best Finnish ski resort four times, offering more than 40 lifts with runs ranging from family friendly to World Cup standard.
Situated 170 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, the resort’s range includes 230 kilometres of cross-country skiing, plus snowshoe hiking trails and 900 kilometres of snowmobile routes. The Northern lights can also be admired during the winter sport activities, making for a unique sporting experience.
Kittila is a tourist town associated which also gets popular for tourists to experience the culture maintained by indigenous Sami people.
