Norwegian startup airline Flyr is confidently moving forward with its launch. Founded in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis, Flyr already has plans to operate its first passenger flight on 30th June to Tromsø. A press release from the airline notes that Flyr will begin ticket sales in May – made possible with the Norwegian government providing a concrete plan for reopening the economy.
The carrier will also launch services to additional destinations in Norway “and well-known and beloved destinations in Europe,” says CEO Tonje Wikstrøm Frislid. These ‘beloved destinations’ will include Alicante.
Flyr’s first pair of aircraft will be delivered in May, with more being delivered in June. Data from Planespotters.net indicates that these two initial aircraft will be Boeing 737-800s that have previously flown for Turkish budget airline Pegasus. Configured with an all-economy 189 seats, the average age of the jets is about eight years. After the summer season, the fleet will be expanded through the autumn. Assuming the airline keeps with an all 737 fleet with an all-economy layout, it certainly sounds like it will be a Norwegian version of Ryanair.
