Feel Air - a new long haul airline with a fresh breath

Oslo is a back water on long haul non-stop flights. Most times Norwegian passengers will have to change planes in Stockholm, Copenhagen, London, or Paris. The new Feel Air is determined to change this. Two planes will operate new non-stop flights from Oslo and Stockholm to New York and Bangkok starting 2010. We wish them luck! We need all the competition we can get.

The Swedish Norwegian duo Kai Holmberg and Otto Lagarhus have invested NOK 240 million, and will start with 2 Airbus 330-200, one based in Stockholm, the other in Oslo. They will operate on a flexible schedule, flying passengers from the two capital cities to New York and Bangkok. The two investors believe that the key to success is keeping the two vessels in the air as much as possible.

Around 3 million passengers in Norway and Sweden travel to these two destinations every year, and Holmberg and Lagarhus hope that they will get 350 000 passengers the first year.
