muratart /

British Airways announced that it will launch its first ever flight to Tromso Airport (TOS) in Norway this winter season.

Available for booking now, the flights to the famous winter destination will take off from December 1, 2024, and will be available twice a week until March 27, 2025.

Serviced by the airline’s A320neo fleet, the flights will run on the following schedules:

Because of its central position in the Northern Lights’ oval, Tromso is known to be one of the best places in the world to see the aurora borealis. The Norwegian city is also famous for winter activities such as skiing, mountaineering and whale watching due to abundant snowfall and average winter temperatures ranging from 0°C to -5°C.

“Those who missed the northern lights in the UK need not worry,” Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Chief Planning and Strategy Officer said in a statement.

“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 optimized the schedule for three- and four-night trips, which we know are perfect for a destination like this,” Chernoff added.

British Airways said that customers on Tromso flights can take skiing or snowboarding equipment as part of their checked baggage so long as the bag is within 190 x 75 x 65cm.
