Norwegian Air Shuttle Flies to the North Pole…
In late March, 2008, the Norwegian low-cost carrier will begin flying between Oslo and Longyearbyen, Svalbard‘s main settlement. Svalbard, an archipelago roughly half-way between Norway and the North Pole, has emerged as a big, and very expensive, eco-destination over the last few decades.
The cheapest Norwegian Air Shuttle round-trip we found was just NOK1542 (€195; $265), including taxes.
