New Nordic carrier to launch in April

Norway’s Flynonstop selects E190 to launch operations

Flynonstop, a new Norwegian airline based in Kristiansand, has acquired an Embraer 190 to support its launch on 25 April 2013. The aircraft will be leased from a third party and configured with 100 “elite” seats in single-class layout. The airline intends to operate its E190 between Kristiansand and major European cities to tap into the growing demand for scheduled nonstop air service to and from Norway.
“Like our name suggests, the focus of our business is to link underserved markets in Norway with key cities in Southern and Central Europe without having to make a connection,” said Daniel Lundberg, Flynonstop’s CEO. “The E190’s range and size is ideal. We can add frequency and routes without adding too many seats and we can fly nonstop to places with seasonal demand as well as to key business cities.”
Embraer planes have been flying throughout Scandinavia for years, but Flynonstop is the first customer to operate an E-Jet from Norway. E-Jets are currently in service with three other Northern European based carriers – Finnair, Flybe Finland and Estonian Air.
Flynonstop is described as a new privately owned premium airline. The founder and owner is Espen Hennig-Olsen, a Kristiansand businessman in the ice cream business. Lundberg has aviation experience from Viking Airlines and Air Sweden. The airline plans to start the only route between Norway and London City Airport (five times weekly, reduced to three weekly in summer) plus seven other destinations: Barcelona, Berlin Tegel, Dubrovnik, Nice, Palma de Mallorca, Paris CDG and Parma. The lowest fare on offer is €250 return.
