New Route of the Day (1 July 2022): Flyr between Oslo and Porto
Norwegian carrier Flyr celebrated one year of scheduled services on 30 June 2022. The following day it launched a new 2-weekly service on the 2,510-kilometre route between Oslo and Porto. This appears to be the first time that these two airports have ever been connected with non-stop service.
Flyr, which initially operated primarily on domestic routes in Norway, has massively increased its international network this summer with the addition of over 20 new routes from Oslo, as well as adding non-stop service to southern Europe from Bergen and Stavanger.
