Finnair will operate a new weekly route to Enontekiö in Finland during winter 2016 to take snow sports fans to Lapland.
Enontekiö has around 300km of skiing trails and guarantees the longest skiing season in Finland. It also boasts the chance of seeing the Northern Lights on every 3 out of four nights during winter.

AY531 HEL-ENF 07:25-09:40
