Kathryn Beadle, Managing Director commented “We are very excited about the new additions to the 2015 programme. There is already a strong demand for our direct flights from across the UK, so we are delighted to have an even larger network of regional flying in the pipeline.
“We are also very much looking forward to welcoming the MS Fram back to UK shores. The ship already has many fans in the UK, so we believe the new voyage will prove very popular”.
Prices are based on two sharing.
