Flyr is headquartered in Norway and commences passenger flight operations on 30 June 2021. The airline will offer domestic flights from Oslo as well as international services to European leisure destinations, with its inaugural flight due to take off from Oslo for Tromso.

The three-year contracts will encompass passenger, ramp and de-icing services. These agreements will further strengthen Menzies’ operations in both of these key airports and represent up to 6,000 turns per year across the two stations.

Miguel Gomez Sjunnesson, Executive Vice President at Menzies Aviation, said: “We are very excited to be partnering with Flyr as it starts these new services. We are already working closely together to deliver a successful start-up and a seamless operation. Supporting Flyr from the launch of its operations is a mark of the excellent standard of service we provide our customers. We look forward to developing a long-term relationship with Flyr.”

Bjørn Erik Barman-Jenssen, Chief Ground Operations Officer at Flyr, said: “Throughout the whole tender process, Menzies Aviation showed a willingness to work with us to take the airport experience to a new level, while being responsive and creative in their approach to our visions and goals. I know that our Menzies colleagues will do their utmost to provide the highest standards of customer experience alongside our dedicated crew. I look forward to working with Menzies to further develop this partnership and create a new norm for a friendly and hassle-free airport experience.”
