The two airlines join Ryanair in announcing new bases at Stockholm Arlanda Airport, in a move that means fierce competition for Scandinavian Airlines (SAS).
The move is seemingly motivated by Norwegian Air’s decline, with the airline reportedly operating at 18% of its Arlanda capacity in 2019.
New international routes
Eurowings, a German carrier part of the Lufthansa Group, will have five A320 airplanes at Stockholm Arlanda Airport from March 2022.
The airline has announced 12 initial routes, offering travel from Stockholm to holiday destinations such as Palma de Mallorca (PMI), Alicante (ALC), Malaga (AGP), Faro (FAO), and Nice (NCE), as well as business flights to Berlin (BBI), Barcelona (BCN), Rome (FCO), Copenhagen (CPH), Birmingham (BHX), Gdansk (GDN) and Pristina (PRN), according to Aerotime.
Finnair, on the other hand, will have three A350-900s stationed at Arlanda and has introduced five new long-distance routes from Stockholm to Bangkok, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and Phuket.
Travelers will be able to travel to Bangkok, Miami, and Phuket from late October, Los Angeles from early November, and New York from early December.
