MIA: Florida’s winter gateway to Scandinavia

MIA: Florida’s winter gateway to Scandinavia

On September 18, Officials from Miami-Dade County and Norse Atlantic Airways gathered at Miami International Airport to celebrate the airline’s launch of nonstop service from MIA to London Gatwick and Oslo – two destinations previously unserved from MIA. The inaugural flights are the result of Norse Atlantic’s decision to relocate its South Florida operations from Ft. Lauderdale to MIA, where it now flies to London Gatwick and Oslo four times per week.

The event also marked the first in a series of four service launches at MIA before the winter travel season that will give the airport more flights to Scandinavia than any other Florida airport.

Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) will restart Miami service on October 29 with two weekly flights to Stockholm, Sweden, and five weekly flights to Copenhagen, Denmark. In the following month, Finnair will also return to MIA with three weekly flights to Helsinki, Finland starting on November 25.

No other Florida airport has nonstop service to the four Scandinavian countries of Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden, which each have popular holiday attractions during the winter season. Whether it is the Christmas markets of Hygge or Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Gamla Stan in Stockholm, Spikersuppa in Oslo, or Senate Square in Helsinki, Floridians can soon get to all these winter wonderland vacation destinations from MIA.
