Snowflake have chosen Inverness as the destination for their first venture into the UK. This can only be a good thing for the Highland enconomy!!

Thought some of you might be interested.

And the Scottish tourism agency is doing a massive campaign together with Snowflak and FR on Swedish radio at the moment.

That's a very strange first choice for their UK operation. I would imagine Aberdeen or Glasgow but not Inverness.

Maybe SAS got a very low fee for landing at Inverness, compared to ABZ and GLA???

I always think there is a greater link between Scotland and Norway rather than Sweden, so why isn't the flight orginate from Oslo?

Snowflake doesn't have any flights originating in OSL - yet. I think the plans called for a third base at OSL, I think it was last fall or this spring, but it seems to have been postponed. When (if) Snowflake starts flights from OSL I think they will start with more than one route, but if the flight from ARN is successful, a OSL-INV might be viable.

KEno,
But there is a direct connection Oslo - Scotland. Duo has a daily connection Oslo - Edinburgh (and Birmingham, as well). Cheap, too. Sure beats Ryanair's Torp - GLA if you live in the Oslo area....

Trains and boats and planes....

GOT, I think SK for now has cancelled all plans to introduce Snowflake in Norway. NB and DY have already taken their share of the intra-European market, as has BU, SK's very own weapon to cut costs here.

oh, INV-will give me something more interesting than the Logan Air, Highland and EZY planes in INV- I am very surpised to be honest-i would have thought a link between ABZ and Scandinavia would be stronger-it is a traditionally popular route

Not so. It's a tourist route. Golfers, fishing, hunting, Whisky tours, or just plain nature enjoyment. Inverness is right in the middle of it all.

It's not a businessman's route.

Happy landing, Preben Norholm



Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs, Preben Norholm

Its cool tht the highlands are doing so well, SYY is home to me, and it has just got a JET service to EDI, a HWY service to INV and BEB and the standard BA flights. I know its probably unfeasible, but an LCC Would be most welcomes-especially LON-SYY, as I KNOW most people connect at GLA/INV/EDI to LON, (And its a fact guys-dont tell me different!). Links to London are of big importance for the Higlands, and Snowflake is hopefully, the tip of the iceberg, INV has came a long way in the past 10 years, when I flew,there was LSO, SYY or LON, and now the route network has exploded!

Probably just an aircraft substitution for a regular SAS aircraft.

Yupp. SK uses Snowflake A/C on "airline" routes and "airline" A/C on Snowflake routes.
