Advise On DUS - Scandinavia

Fri Mar 19, 2004 6:59 am

Can someone tell me which airline can give the best price on the following trip:
Dusseldorf-Helsinki-Stockholm-Copenhagen-Paris ?
Any ideas ? What a bout Ryanair or Easyjet ? Or any other? What do you think?

Thank you

DUS-HEL V-Bird http://www.v-bird.com but they fly from Niederrhein (NRN) not from DUS. From DUS only LH, KF and AY.

HEL-ARN only possibilities are AY, SK/KF - no "no-frills" flying up there now when FlyinFinn is gone :-(

ARN-CPH try Sterling http://www.sterlingticket.com or Nordic Airlink http://www.flynordic.com

CPH-CDG Maersk http://www.maerskair.com only from 03May!!! and Sterling as abowe!

Hi Bongo!

if you prefer to fly with LCCs, you could fly;
1.DUS-HEL
www.vbird.com
VBird flies from Niederrhein "near Düsseldorf" (NRN) to HEL once daily
2.HEL-ARN
www.flyme.com
Swedish start-up FlyME opened this route only a couple of weeks ago, I think.
3.ARN-CPH
www.nordicairlink.se
I recall Nordic Airlink flies this route. You could also take that flyME to MMX, Malmö Sturup, then the bus + train combination via Malmö to Copenhagen.
From CPH onwards somebody else probably knows better...

But if you are able to buy some kind of a Star Alliance Europe pass, that could be a good option as well. Have a look at www.staralliance.com

Hope this helps,
okko

DABZF,

didn't mean to be correcting you, didn't see your reply when I was writing mine. Yep, interesting to see how things will turn out for this flyme.com - I wish them all the best but their routes are extremely competitive.

DUS-HEL V-Bird but they fly from Niederrhein (NRN) not from DUS. From DUS only LH, KF and AY.

A few weeks ago I wanted to book a flight on V-Bird from NRN to HEL, their fare was (if I remember correct) 99 EUR oneway. Than I looked on LH's page, their fare was around 180 EUR for a return flight, of course I chose LH, they start from DUS (and not from the middle of nowhere), I get a drink and a meal for free and I can collect miles. I was really dissapointed from V-Bird's fares, no cheap deal despite I wanted to book several weeks in advance.

Ei se mitään Okko!

Well, I think that HEL-ARN route definitely needs "no-frill" and there is room and passengers for them, for sure! Within Sweden and CPH I'm not so sure though!? Good luck anyway!
