Edinburgh set for Helsinki flights

Edinburgh Airport has announced a new route to the Finnish Capital of Helsinki. The route is being operated by Finnish airline Blue 1 and will see a twice weekly service starting in April 2011. “This is a significant development for Edinburgh Airport and Edinburgh itself as it is a predominantly inbound route and shows the continuing strength of Edinburgh as a destination,” Edinburgh Airport managing Director Kevin Brown. “We’re committed to continuing to play our role in Scottish tourism by making it as easy a possible for tourists to access Edinburgh and beyond. As we face increased taxation and continuing confidence issues in aviation it is crucial that we maintain a diverse choice of routes for passengers.” It is the 25th destination to be added to Edinburgh Airport in 2010 and brings the number of routes from Scotland’s Capital to 125.
