A special summer only route has been recently announced by Scandinavian Airlines between Stockholm and Bristol in the South West of England. The twice weekly flights which begin next year will operate on Monday and Friday between June 30 and August 15.
The route, which will run on Boeing 737-800′ jets is expected to be popular for short-break holidays planned as city breaks by British and Swedish people who would like to see more of Europe, but are hampered by limited time off work.
Bristol is a useful jumping off point for travellers into Britain because outside of London-based travel, Bristol links well to popular attractions like the historical city of Bath and the beautiful Cotswolds. Bristol itself, of course, also has plenty to offer visitors too.
Stockholm is a fascinating capital city to visit for British people. It is comprised of 14 separate islands, which are linked together via 57 bridges. This type of attractive archipelago will be a completely new thing for many travellers from the UK who may have never seen anything like it before.
It has been 5 years since the same airline route was flown between Bristol and Stockholm. Visit Sweden also noted their delight at the opportunity to welcome more British travellers to check out their museums like the Abba Museum, the Vasa Museum, sample the varied Swedish cuisine or visit some of the other attractions around the capital city.
Visit England, Bath Tourism Plus (which promotes visits to Bath), Destination Bristol, Visit Sweden and Scandinavian Airlines will all be doing their bit to promote the new airline route.
For adventurous travellers who enjoy going on short city breaks to interesting new places, Sweden is an enticing new possibility for people who live within driving distance (or can catch a train) to the Bristol Airport.
