For the first time London City Airport is to offer flights to Norway care of Flynonstop, a new carrier based at Kristiansand Airport, at the most southerly point of the country.
A brand new 100-seat Embraer E-190 jet will operate on the route, with each seat offering its own iPad. Daily flights are planned from 25 April, Monday to Friday.
Kristiansand is the capital of southern Norway and is a major business hub for the shipbuilding, oil and gas industries. The area is known for its rugged coast, small rocky reefs and islands, busy summer harbours, white wooden houses and calendar of festivals.
Bernard Lavelle, Sales Director at London City Airport said: “We are delighted that Flynonstop has chosen London City Airport as its UK base, opening up Norway and the wider Nordic region as a new destination for our passengers. Norway is a beautiful country and I’m sure it will prove a popular destination for travellers from London and the South East. The new route will also open up opportunities for the smaller Norwegian airports to connect directly to central London, benefitting both leisure and business travellers”. www.flynonstop.no/en
