Commencing on 11 December 2016, the new route will be easyJet’s first service from the UK to Sweden. The winter only service will operate once per week on Sundays on an A320 aircraft.
Neil Slaven, easyJet’s UK commercial manager, said: "Åre Östersund, which is located in Sweden’s Jämtland province, is a great skiing destination and we are sure it will prove a popular service for both skiers and snowboarders looking to explore the region.
Meanwhile, VisitSweden's Ami Hovstadius, managing director UK, added: "We are very excited to be working with easyJet on this new direct route to Åre Östersund Airport and Sweden's top alpine ski resorts. More people are travelling to Sweden from the UK than ever before with the Swedish lifestyle, Scandi food and Nordic Noir proving irresistible."
