Air Flash: Norwegian Air Shuttle Takes FlyNordic

FlyNordic, not quite R.I.P.

Yesterday it was announced that Norwegian Air Shuttle would purchase FlyNordic. We’ve been fans of FlyNordic since our intra-Scandinavian night flight adventure in the summer of 2005, replete as it was with friendly flight attendants and a truly low one-way fare.

FlyNordic, which is currently owned by Finnair, flies to seven destinations within Sweden and an additional eight destinations across Scandinavia and the rest of Europe. Norwegian Air Shuttle flies to nine destinations within Norway and a further 42 across the rest of Europe.

Flycheapo reports that FlyNordic will be maintained as a separate brand. We’re relieved. We don’t want that branded flower motif and cool font to disappear.
