Off to a Flyr: New airline to operate Edinburgh to Oslo flights Flyr to begin first UK flights in April 2022.

Posted: 14th February 2022

New Norwegian airline Flyr will land at Edinburgh Airport in April as it operates a route between Edinburgh and Oslo.

The route between the capital cities will operate up to three times a week with the first flight departing on 8 April 2022. It will be a year-round service.

Flyr only began flying last year and this will be the airline’s first UK route, operating on 737-800 aircraft.

Kate Sherry, Aviation Director at Edinburgh Airport 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.”
