Norwegian carrier Flyr’s first route will connect Oslo-Gardermoen to Paris CDG on 14 October. Services to Copenhagen (CPH) and Rome Fiumicino (FCO) will start one day later. Each of these three new routes will be operated twice weekly by Boeing 737-800. Launched on June 30, Flyr already serves Nice from Oslo – again with two frequencies per week.

The carrier will face strong competition on all these routes from Norwegian, SAS and Paris with Air France

.

From Oslo, the company offers transfers to six other Norwegian cities, including Bergen, Trondheim and Tromsø. Eventually, Flyr says it wants to serve 50 destinations in Europe with a fleet of 28 to 30 aircraft. In France, the company plans to open flights to Ajaccio in the longer term.
