Foreign airlines win Norway flights. Norwegian Minister of Transport Magnhild Meltveit Kleppa has awarded two Danish companies contracts on five of Norway’s 18 regional routes. The concessions, starting April 2012, give two Danish and one Norwegian carrier rights to operate return flights for between four and five years. Danish Air Transport (DAT) and North Flying won four routes and one route, respectively. Norway’s Widerøe will fly 13, swapping two with DAT. North Flying takes over one of DAT's routes. The Røros-Oslo tender will be put out as soon as possible.
