It may seem a tad premature to be thinking about knocking back mulled wine and being pulled in a sled to the sounds of Finland’s answer to Michael Bublé, but not when there are bargains to be had…

Ryanair has just announced the launch of a London to Lapland route, operating four flights a week between London Stansted Airport (STN) and Rovaniemi Airport (RVN) in Northern Finland from 3 November.

This would be exciting enough if not for the fact that to mark the news, the low-cost carrier is offering some serious sales, starting from £19.99 for single fares no less. Be quick though as they are likely to go faster than Rudolph on steroids.

TPG found one-way fares from Stanstead to Rovaniemi for £21.99 on Tuesday 1 November, and Thursday 3 November, before sharply returning to normality (the £80 mark) from Saturday 5 November until New Year.

For the return leg, we found one-way return tickets from Rovaniemi to Stanstead on 1, 3, 6, 8 and 10 November for the magical price of £19.99, giving you plenty of window to bag a bargain return flight deal for under £50.

“It’s never too early to talk about Christmas,” said Ryanair marketing director Dara Brady of the announcement, “so we’re delighted to announce the launch of our Stansted to Lapland route, operating four times per week from 3 November as part of our UK winter 2022-2023 schedule.”

He’s not wrong — although should you also want to book a post-Christmas jaunt in Lapland, there are also decent fares to be had from early January, too, beginning from as little as £21.99 one-way.

However you look at it, it’s a win-win. Capitalising on the recent flurry in holiday bookings while travel restrictions continue to ease across Europe, Ryanair hasn’t missed a trick, giving punters an opportunity to make up for the lack of festive travel over the last couple of pandemic-hit years.

So if you’re keen to avoid a family get together with extended family, you know what to do…
