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 April 8 2022. It will be a year-round service.

Flyr only began flying last year and this will be the airline’s first UK route.

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.
