Norwegian start-up Flyr officially granted AOC

written by WOFA | June 21, 2021

Norway’s newest low-cost carrier Flyr has officially been granted an air operator’s certificate (AOC) by the Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority.

The budget start-up stated it will target a concentrated route offering in high-margin markets, and will begin with a domestic network.

With this regulatory approval, all formalities are in place for the company to initiate operations, with its first flight from Oslo to Tromsø scheduled for 30 June.

“We at Flyr would like to thank the Civil Aviation Authority for a constructive and professional process. Now all formalities are in place and we look forward to welcoming our guests on board,” said Flyr CEO Tonje Wikstrøm Frislid.

The Oslo-Tromsø route is the first in a series of routes Flyr will start to operate during its first months of operations.

Going forward, the company plans to gradually broaden its offering through a stepwise expansion.


The carrier aims to initially focus on domestic routes within Norway, with selected external European leisure destinations, before gradually expanding its European presence, and ultimately providing a full Norwegian and European demand-driven offering.

Flyr’s only aircraft in its fleet is a Boeing 737-800 (LN-FGA) previously operated by Turkish low-cost carrier Pegasus Airlines.

Two more aircraft of the same type are expected by the time it starts scheduled flights.
