Fred Kochak, Flybe’s Director of Commercial comments:“I am pleased to confirm that we have been able to reinstate some of our flights for the Savonlinna Opera Festival. We appreciate that there is significant passenger demand over this period and that the ability to have the choice of affordable, time-saving flights between Helsinki to Savonlinna is of great support to the Festival and to the regional tourism economy in general at this time. We would hope that the additional services we are offering will be well supported and look forward to welcoming passengers on board. We would urge people to book as early as possible to take advantage of our lowest possible fares.”
