From 25th April, Norway premium start-up carrier airline Flynonstop will fly London City to Kristiansand’s Kjevik Airport five times a week.

Kristiansand, Norway’s fifth-largest city is a major business hub for the shipbuilding, oil and gas industries.

It is also a popular holiday destination, known for its white wooden houses, pleasant summer temperatures and entertainment, including Risør’s annual chamber music festival.

Moreover, those interested in outdoor activities and boating can take advantage of the area’s rugged coast and small rocky reefs and islands through the year.

A brand new 100-seat Embraer E-190 jet will operate on the route, with each seat having its own iPad.

“We are delighted that Flynonstop has chosen London City Airport as its UK base, opening up Norway and the wider Nordic region as a new destination for our passengers,” says Bernard Lavelle, Sales Director at London City Airport.

“The new route will also open up opportunities for the smaller Norwegian airports to connect directly to central London, benefitting both leisure and business travellers,” he adds.

London City Airport, at the heart of London’s financial district, offers quick and convenient check-in and arrivals.

The airport is situated just three miles from Canary Wharf. It has its own station on the Docklands Light Railway, connecting it directly to the London Underground network and the West End.
