British Airways to launch inaugural Tromsø service in December

British Airways will begin its first ever service to Tromsø, Norway, from December 1.

The city will become the airline’s most northerly destination globally and is available for bookings now.

It is famous for being of the best places in the world to see the northern lights and is a popular destination for winter activities including skiing, mountaineering, whale-watching and visits to its Christmas market.

Neil Chernoff, BA 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 a destination like this.”

Return flights are available from £153 and will run twice a week until March 27, 2025.
