Arkia Israel Airlines will offer a weekly flight to the capital cities of Finland and Norway this summer.
According to Arkia CEO Gadi Tepper, the flights will allow passengers to combine destinations – fly to Helsinki and return from Oslo, or the other way around.
Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz approved Arkia's request to operate the flights thanks to an aviation agreement Israel
has signed with Norway and Finland.
Finland's largest airline, Finnair, announced several weeks ago that it plans to begin operating direct flights between Helsinki and Tel Aviv
starting in June.
