Key Benefits of Flying Direct

Save Time & Arrive Relaxed

Maximise your time away with our 3½ hour flight to Kiruna. This can save you up to 4½ hours when compared to the travelling via Stockholm.

Complimentary Meals & Drinks

Scheduled services via Stockholm don’t include a complimentary meal service – although you’ll be able to buy drinks and light snacks onboard. Only on our direct flight you be able to enjoy a meal with wine, beer and soft drinks, included in the price. In economy class the meal will be cold; upgrade to premium class to enjoy a hot meal while you fly.

Sociable Flight Times

By flying direct you’ll have far friendlier flight times. Departing Heathrow mid morning at 10:35 and landing in Kiruna mid-afternoon around 3pm. On your return journey you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast as you won’t be departing Kiruna until 14:25, landing back on UK soil at Heathrow around 5pm. If you travel via Stockholm, flights depart Heathrow at either 07:00, meaning a very early start or a mid-afternoon flight, which combined with the extra travel time, means arriving in Kiruna just before midnight. It is even a requirement on some dates to stop overnight in Stockholm adding on extra cost and travel plans to your break.

Reduced Risk of Lost Luggage

When flying direct there is no need to change planes which may have tight connections, increasing the risk of your luggage not making it to the destination – always a bonus!

Pre-Book Seats

On our direct flight it is possible to reserve any seats* in advance at no extra cost, so if you’d like that little bit of extra leg room by booking an aisle seat or you’d like to confirm seats together for your party, simply give us call. When flying scheduled services however, you’ll need to wait until check-in to choose any seats and there is no guarantee that you will be able to sit together.

*except emergency exit seats which must be allocated at check-in
