Oslo - Tromsø with Flyr, from June 30, 2021.
Flyr will start operating flights starting in June this year, with the company's first flight scheduled to fly from Oslo to Tromso on June 30. Tickets will go on sale starting in May. The release date was not chosen at random. The Norwegian government has said that from June, restrictions in the country will relax and citizens will be able to resume travel, at least domestically.
"A concrete plan to reopen Norway gives the airline the predictability we needed to start selling tickets. In order not to get into a situation with significant changes in the route schedule and subsequent re-bookings, the official launch of the airline has been adapted to the government's plan to reopen Norway. Employees and partners are eager to get started and people are eager to travel. ”, said Flyr CEO Tonje Wikstrøm Frislid.
