Flights take off on November 16 and will operate twice a week throughout the winter season providing more families with the opportunity to explore Santa’s village and meet Father Christmas and Rudolph.

Kittila is located 150km north of Roveniemi in the northern arctic circle and will also appeal to winter sports lovers, stargazers looking for a glimpse of the Northern lights and those who wish to explore the snowy alpine forests in the region.

The new flights which are on sale at easyJet.com from today will operate twice a week throughout the Christmas peak winter season on Thursdays and Sundays from November 16.

Having last year added a new route connecting Manchester to Rovaniemi in the heartland of Lapland, the addition of Kittlia provides even more choice for those from the North West considering booking a magical Christmas break.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager said:
