Oslo Airport yesterday welcomed an easyJet flight for the first time to its route network when direct services started between Berlin Tegel Airport and Norway’s primary airport.
The daily Airbus A320 route has increased capacity between the two capital cities by more than 131,000 seats per year.
Airport operator Avinor’s vice president of traffic development, Jasper Spruit said: “We are thrilled to welcome easyJet to Oslo Airport. This route will contribute to creating value and provide passengers with good options to Central Europe and onto the rest of easyJet’s substantial network.”
“The route will also bring more travellers to Norway and have a positive impact on both tourism and industry.”
easyJet’s country director for Germany, Thomas Haagensen said the carrier is delighted to have the new route in place and it is an exciting step for the low-cost carrier.
“It is great to add a new Scandivanian destination to our network and we are confident that Oslo will prove popular with holidaymakers and business travellers from Berlin this summer,” he added.
