Welcome to my trip report!

In this trip report I will cover my flight from Stockholm-Bromma Airport (BMA) to Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (HEL). From there I had a connecting flight to Brussels, and I chose to fly with the Finnish flagship carrier.

I used public transport (tram, metro and bus) to take me to Bromma. When living in Stockholm, it's always much more convenient to fly from Bromma than Arlanda, because of its location and small size. The airport was quite deserted when I arrived, as all morning flights going to diffrent airports around Sweden already had departed. I came through security at no time at all, and with almost an hour to go I had time to buy me some snus and take a beer before it was time to board the aircraft.

As the runway at Bromma is only 1 668 meters long, it's not possible for larger aircrafts to use the airport. The plane taking us to Finland today was OH-ATH, an ATR 72-500 leased from Nordic Regional Airlines. I picked the seat 1D when doing the online check-in, and as the aircraft was filled up to approx. 30%, I got the first row, with extra legroom for myself.

The flight itself was quite uneventful as we flew across a cloudy Baltic Sea. The flight crew offered us complimentary coffee and tea, which was highly appreciated by me. After around an hour in the air, we landed in Helsinki on time, and were taken by bus to the terminal.

I hoped that you enjoyed my flight report!

Conclusion

This was a normal, intra-Nordic flight taking me across the Baltic Sea to Helsinki. It was a standard one hour-flight, nothing special. Flying from Bromma is to recommend if you have the opportunity, as it is more efficient than going to Arlanda.
