Norwegian Air Shuttle moves operations to Rygge Airport

The low budget airline Norwegian Air Shuttle are operating out from Oslo airport. February 14th 2008, the air carrier starts its first services from the new Rygge airport an hour south of Oslo, and during the spring Norwegian will move more of its activity away from Norwegians largest hub.

Services to 14 different destination will be moved to Rygge, saving travelers 15-20 minutes traveling time. This allows Norwegian to cut prices further, as airport taxes are lower at Rygge than at Oslo airport and the fuel costs will be lower to Rygge as it is south of the Norwegian capital. Aftenposten has learned that services to Belgrade, Marrakech, Szczcecin, Valencia and Istanbul will take off from the new airport during spring.

Rygge airport is located close to the city of Moss an hour with train south of Oslo. It is also easy accessible via a new highway leading directly to the airport. (Aftenposten October 30th 2007)
