British Airways Announces Inaugural Flight to Tromsø in Norway

Tromsø in Norway

British Airways will launch its first-ever flight to Tromsø in Norway this winter.

Starting December 1, 2024, Tromsø will be the airline’s northernmost destination. Customers may book now.

Because of its central location in the Northern Lights oval, the Norwegian city is regarded as one of the greatest in the world for seeing the aurora borealis. With typical winter temperatures ranging from 0°C to -5°C, the destination’s abundance of snowfall makes it ideal for winter sports like skiing, climbing, and whale watching.

This winter paradise near the Arctic Circle is also a favourite destination for people who like visiting Christmas markets. Stortorget, the city’s main plaza, has the most attractive market and Christmas tree.

Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Chief Planning and Strategy Officer, said: “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 this destination.”

Customers looking for holiday packages can enjoy a wide selection from British Airways Holidays, which include deposits from just £60 per person, flexible payment options, ATOL protection, a 24-hour helpline and a 23-kg baggage allowance. For example:

British Airways Holidays is offering three nights for £379 per person at the Comfort Hotel Xpress Tromso for room only when travelling in January 2025. includes one checked bag (weighing 23 kg per person) and return economy (Euro Traveller) flights from London Heathrow.

Up to March 27, 2025, return flights will operate twice a week for £153. Tickets are on sale now. Customers may check their luggage if it fits inside 190 x 75 x 65 cm of ski or snowboard equipment.
