LONDON – Air Lease Corporation has handed over the first Boeing 737 MAX to Flyr.
LN-FGF was the first of six to be delivered to the carrier, with options for an additional four yet to be exercised at this point.
Data from RadarBox.com shows that the aircraft departed Boeing Field on February 21 at 10:14 local time and subsequently arrived into Oslo Gardermoen at 0436 local time the next day.
The remaining five aircraft are set to be delivered over the course of the year, with Flyr confident about the road ahead for expanded operations, as explained by CEO Tonje Wikstrom Frislid:
“Flyr is progressing according to plan, and we have been very well received in the market.”
“We are very happy with the development and after a period heavily influenced by Omicron and government-imposed restrictions, we are now prepared for the summer season where we will offer 44 routes to 38 destinations.”
Flyr looks set to become the next Nordic low-cost carrier to try and penetrate the market and make up the lost ground that Norwegian Air made when it had to scale back operations.
It is going to be interesting to see how the airline fares move forward.
