NextJet ATPs to Helsinki
According to Routes Online, NextJet are to start flying their BAe ATPs to Helsinki from September.
The Swedish airline is the only carrier to still operate the British turboprop airliner in passenger configuration, operating it mostly on domestic flights within Sweden.
However, the airline is to start 1-3 daily flights between Stockholm Vasteras and Helsinki with the ATP fro 15 September.
The flight is also a codeshare with Finnair, meaning onward connections are easy to arrange. The schedule is:
2N3581 VST0615 – 0840HEL ATP x67
2N3585 VST1325 – 1550HEL ATP D
2N3587 VST1805 – 2030HEL ATP x6
2N3582 HEL0910 – 0935VST ATP x67
2N3586 HEL1635 – 1655VST ATP D
2N3588 HEL2100 – 2125VST ATP x6
