There are flights from regional UK airports to Helsinki in Finland (about 3 hours from London), with onwards connections to Ivalo (about 90 minutes), Rovaniemi (about 75 minutes), Kittilä (about 1 hour 25 minutes) or Kuusamo (about 1 hour 25 minutes). However, some organised winter holidays use direct flights to smaller airports close to the resorts, including Ivalo.

For Swedish Lapland, one option is to fly to Stockholm (about 2 hours 10 minutes from London) then connect to Kiruna (about 1 hour 30 minutes).
