TNT has increased services to Sweden and Finland by re-introducing flights to Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Orebro Airport, while services to Turku Airport will stop at Helsinki Vantaa Airport first.

It restarted the five times a week Liege (Belgium) to Stockholm and Orebro services on 7 September, which TNT says will provide earlier arrival times for imports and later export departures compared to the previous service to Vasteras Airport. TNT says now the Liege – Turku service stops in Helsinki, the company will reach the Finnish capital three hours earlier than before.

TNT International Europe managing director, Ian Clough says: “We have expanded the number of locations for our international, next-day morning deliveries in the Nordics to help our customers who need speed and certainty.”

TNT says in Sweden it has appointed new distribution partners in Sweden to speed up deliveries in Stockholm, Malmo and Orebro. In Finland it has adjusted what it calls its pick up and delivery capabilities (PUD) in Helsinki to accommodate for the change in flight times. TNT says it has increased its PUD services in Denmark to allow more deliveries for 12.00h in the Copenhagen and Billund areas and has done the same in Norway for Oslo and Stavanger.

In March TNT started five times a week services from Liege to Tel Aviv using a Boeing 737-400 Freighter. TNT started five times a week Liege – Marseilles – Malta flights using a Boeing 737-400 Freighter in June and in July it launched services to Tunisia’s capital, Tunis, from Liege via Marseilles five days a week using a Boeing 737-400 Freighter.
