I think they have tried ARN-OUL at least three times over the last 10-15 years and it never lasted long.
Not profitable/enough passengers. They only flew 3 or 4 weekly when both Norwegian and Finnair up to 12 daily, so they couldn't compete.
EDIT: Oh, you said when, not why. Two weeks ago.
If it is only 3 times a week and evidently non-peak hours when the plane has nothing else to do, they lose all business travellers from the beginning and get only price sensitive tourists. Did it even match the connecting flights?
For a semi-domestic route twice a day is the minimum to make sense.
Agree. AY has better connectivity to Europe all day long so even if there were any reasonable connections, OUL business travelers would prefer HEL.
