Norwegian newcomer Flyr to start first UK route

New Norwegian low-cost airline Flyr is to operate its first UK route to Edinburgh airport from Oslo before Easter.

Three flights a week have been scheduled for the year-round service, which starts on April 8.

Flyr began operations last year and will use Bosing 737-800 aircraft on the Scottish connection.

Edinburgh airport aviation director Kate Sherry said: “It’s great to see a new airline like Flyr choosing Edinburgh for its first Scottish route – it really demonstrates the strength of the market and the desire to come and experience what our fantastic capital city and country has to offer.

“As part of our recovery plans it’s important that we work to both retain and grow connectivity to and from Scotland as we know there is a pent-up demand for travel, be it reuniting with families and friends or forging business links, and we will continue to map out a sustainable recovery for Edinburgh airport.”
