A new direct flight between Oslo and Edinburgh operated by budget airline Flyr will take off for the first time on Friday, April 8th.
The new travel link between the Norwegian capital and Scotland is among five new routes being launched by Flyr this spring. The other new destinations the airline is adding are Billund, Pisa, Prague and Stockholm.
“We have received many requests from our customers about Stockholm, Prague, Pisa, Edinburgh and Billund and are very pleased to be able to offer these five requested destinations,” Thomas Ramdahl, commercial director of Flyr, said in a press release.
Flyr plans to offer three departures between Norway and Scotland a week.
The new route will make Edinburgh the airline’s first UK destination to which the airline will offer flights.
The announcement follows another airline, Loganair, saying it will restart regular flights between Aberdeen and Oslo this summer.
Tickets for the new destinations are already on sale on Flyr’s website.
