Finnair is expanding its European service for summer 2016 with flights to Edinburgh, Scotland; Billund, Denmark; Pula, Croatia; and Svalbard, Norway.

Finnair will fly to Edinburgh from April 18 to Oct. 27, and Billund in Jutland, Denmark, will become a year-round destination from April 4.

Billund, the second-largest airport in Denmark, is the home of the first LEGOLAND theme park and the Lalandia waterpark, both popular for families with children.

Finnair will continue to increase its Croatia service with two weekly flights between Helsinki and Pula, located on the southern tip of the Istrian peninsula. The carrier will also increase its Split service, with two additional weekly flights next summer, accompanying its existing service to Dubrovnik and Split, offering a total of 14 weekly flights to Croatia.

Finnair will be the first airline to offer scheduled international services to Svalbard, the northernmost airport in the world, located between continental Norway and the North Pole. From June 1 to Aug. 27, there will be three weekly flights from Helsinki.

In summer 2016, new scheduled flights will replace previously chartered flights to the Greek islands of Zakynthos, Skiathos, Santorini, Mytilene and Preveza, as well as to Rimini and Verona, Italy; Varna, Bulgaria; Malta; Tel Aviv; and Biarritz and Nice, France.
