Lapland Airports

The main airports serving Lapland are Rovaniemi, which is the capital of the region & Kittila. However, other airports serve smaller towns and connect the expansive region. With the flight time from London to Rovaniemi around 3 hours, we would recommend a Super Light Jet or larger for flights to Lapland. For a large family a Midsize private jet would also be a fantastic choice giving more room and a stand up cabin. Whichever aircraft you choose, flying to Lapland by private jet will reduce the travel time and increase your comfort.

When flying to cold regions, the likely hood of aircraft de-icing measures being required increases. Our private jet charter experts will help advise you on de-icing measures including arranging a hanger for your plane if necessary. Putting your plane in a hanger can reduce and sometimes remove the need for aircraft de-icing.
