Voice of Travelers to Sweden
A traveler’s paradise!
I had an incredible journey from New Delhi to Sweden. I love to travel different flight services every year, so I always buy air tickets on different airlines. This time I chose to buy my ticket to Sweden from Air India.
Be it any class, traveleres can easily book a ticket online at affordable prices. The inflight service was excellent, and it was the right choice buying a ticket from Air India. For my next trip, I am planning purchase tickets in advance and avail the advance ticket booking discounts.
Summer vacation in Sweden
Last summer, we planned a vacation in the blissful country of Sweden to celebrate our marriage anniversary. We had a comfortable flight from London to Sweden. Our close friend, Harry, suggested booking air tickets from Ryanair Airlines. The ticket rate was quite affordable. We have since come to know that they have excellent advance ticket booking rates, but we were too late to have that offers.
The services were amazing, from food to entertainment. We were blessed to have booked an air ticket to Sweden from Ryanair Airline.
Memorable family getaway to Sweden
I planned a family reunion in Sweden this summer, and it was a memorable one. From New York to Sweden, the flight was a delight! I bought an air ticket from the popular Scandinavian Airlines (SAS). All of us were very comfortable flying with the SAS.
I was so happy that I booked an air ticket from SAS because its services were an ace in the entertainment department. We enjoyed a lot on the flight and will surely buy air tickets from this airline again!
