Norwegian start-up Flyr aims to launch flights at the start of June using Boeing 737-800 aircraft

“We at Flyr would like to thank the Civil Aviation Authority for a constructive and professional process. Now all formalities are in place and we look forward to welcoming our guests on board,” says the airline’s chief executive, Tonje Wikstrøm Frislid, in a stock-exchange filing.

Flyr took delivery of its first aircraft – a Boeing 737-800 registered as LN-FGA – in early June. It signed letters of intent to lease two 737-800s in March, and has long-term plans to operate 28-30 aircraft.
