Northern Lights for the A320

British Airways will be launching its first-ever flight to Tromsø, Norway in December 2024. Commonly known as the ‘gateway to the Arctic,’ the new route will make Tromsø the airline’s northernmost destination in the world.

Flights will operate twice weekly from Dec. 1, 2024 to March 27, 2025. The carrier plans to operate an Airbus A320neo aircraft on the new route.

Tromsø is a popular tourist destination known for its views of the Aurora Borealis. The city is located within the Arctic Circle and boasts winter activities such as skiing, mountaineering and whale watching. Visitors can also explore the city’s Christmas markets around the holiday season.
“Those who missed the northern lights in the UK need not worry!” said Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Chief Planning and Strategy Officer, in a press release. “We are excited to welcome Tromsø to our network – it is a growing winter destination…and we’ll be the only premium carrier operating there from the UK.”

Many other European airlines serve the Norwegian city, including Lufthansa with year-round service to Frankfurt and Air France to Paris-CDG. Starting Nov. 2, 2024, Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) also plans to serve Tromsø from London Heathrow.
