Norwegian Air Shuttle has been absent from Torp Airport, until now - that is. But the air carrier confirms that they will start direct flights from Torp to Alicante in November 2010. 

This means that Ryanair will get competition from Norway's largest budget airline on flights to Alicante. Ryanair's original plan was not to operate any flights to Alicante this winter. The launch of parallel flights by its arch rival has made the Irish air carrier think again. 

It has changed its plants and decided to fly to Alicante this winter. The competing flights flights will take off within 10 minutes of each other each Saturday. They will fly literally fly wing to wing in order to attract travelers. 

Let us hope that this provides lower  air fare for us seeking relief by traveling south during the harsh Norwegian winters

First Norwegian Air Shuttle flight from will be November 6th, and the air carrier will use on of its Boeing 737-800 fleet and it will leave Torp during the afternoon, arriving in Alicante around 7PM.
