FlyNordic Flies With No Frills At All
We all know Scandinavia is an expensive place for a holiday, so it should come as no big surprise to learn that the region's biggest budget airline FlyNordic is also a little on the expensive side. You're not going to get £1 fares on FlyNordic, but you are going to get no-frills service within Sweden and to Denmark, Norway and a few other European destinations at a fairly reasonable price
FlyNordic has a complicated history of ever-shifting Finnish and Norwegian ownership, despite being largely based in Sweden. Now it's a subsidiary of Norwegian Air Shuttle (with Finnair holding 5%), and it targets both leisure travelers and business customers. In fact, businesses can buy a Business Pass good for any member of the company to use for trips within Sweden (20 flights for just $3,000) or to the rest of Scandinavia (20 flights for $3,400). At around $150 a flight, it's no Ryanair, but it does beat a regular carrier hands down.
All FlyNordic is really missing is something catchy to remember it by. After all, Finnair has its panda and Iceland Express has its blog with tips on getting an Icelandic boyfriend, so we hope FlyNordic can come up with something fun soon.
