Next winter, Fritidsresor is increasing the number of seats on its aircraft from Luleå Airport by about 240 per cent compared to last year. That means the number of passengers flying with Fritidsresor will more than triple compared to last year.
”Our biggest investment by far next winter is being made in Luleå. There is such strong response from the region that we are further advancing our plans and expanding the number of additional seats, introducing new destinations and adding flights that are “the right way around”, that is, departing in the morning and returning in the evening,” says Fritidsresor’s general manager for Sweden, Bassam el Mattar.
Along with more flights to Gran Canaria, non-stop charter service to Phuket, Thailand, will continue next winter. The company is also launching charter service to Mexico and Tenerife. Its investment in flights that are “the right way around” continues.
“Flight times will be better, with more time at the destination and more flights to choose from for people who live in northern Sweden,” Mr el Mattar concludes.
People at Luleå Airport view Fritidsresor’s investment favourably. “We are incredibly pleased with the positive investment that Fritidsresor continues to make. It means a great deal for the region. The new destination of Tenerife and especially exciting Mexico are greatly appreciated as new destinations beyond Europe and Asia,” says Ann-Christin Viklund, airport director at Luleå Airport.
All in all, the charter operator is now offering eight destinations with non-stop service from Luleå Airport, four in the summer and four in the winter.
