New British Airways route to Tromsø

British Airways has announced the launch of its first-ever flight to Tromsø, Norway, set to commence on 1 December 2024.

This new route will make Tromsø the airline’s most northerly destination, offering UK-based business travellers and holidaymakers alike a unique opportunity to explore this Arctic gem.

Tromsø, renowned for its spectacular views of the aurora borealis, is perfectly situated within the northern lights’ oval. With winter temperatures ranging from 0°C to -5°C, it promises a true winter wonderland experience, complete with skiing, mountaineering, and whale watching. The city’s festive charm is further enhanced by its popular Christmas markets, particularly the picturesque market in Stortorget, the main square.

Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Chief Planning and Strategy Officer, expressed his enthusiasm for the new route:

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.

Return flights to Tromsø are now available from £153 and will run twice a week until 27 March 2025. Travellers can bring skiing or snowboarding equipment as part of their checked baggage, provided it fits within the dimensions of 190 x 75 x 65cm.
