Flydubai has begun direct flights to Helsinki

Planning a Christmas getaway but can’t decide where? How about the Finish capital of Helsinki, which has just become the latest destination on Flydubai airlines?

The inaugural flight departed from Dubai International’s Terminal 2 on October 23, and takes around six-and-a-half hours each way.

The low cost airline will fly from Dubai International Airport (DXB) to Helsinki Airport (HEL) daily, although the service will operate four times a week during low season between May and September due to seasonal demand, according to Gulf News. It’s the first UAE airline to offer a direct flight to the city.

Finland is a popular winter destination, and one of the best places on Earth to see the Northern Lights.

It’s also famous for its sauna culture. Helsinki is even home to the world’s first Burger King spa, where you can indulge in a burger before sweating it out at the in-store sauna.
