Ryanair was going to fly three return flights a day on the OSL-STN (Oslo Gardermoen to London Stansted) route, and once a day between OSL and VNO (Vilnius) in Lithuania.

“They applied for slots, and the deadline for answering as to whether or not they were going to use them was 31st January this year,” Joachim Westher Andersen, head of communications for airports operator Avinor tells The Foreigner.

The airline’s flight plans have now changed after they returned them, however.

“They’ve applied for new ones, and have to decide by 1st September 2016,” continues Mr Andersen.

Other competitors for the direct route between Oslo and London are low-priced carrier Norwegian, which will serve OSL-LGW (London Gatwick) three times a day during the summer season.

Both British Airways and SAS fly five times a day between OSL and LHR (London Heathrow).

Ryanair’s three daily OSL-STN routes were due to start for the airline’s summer programme from the end of March 2016.

Commenting about their services and the alterations, Hans Joergen Elnaes, Ryanair Sales & Marketing Manager Scandinavia and Baltic says that the airline “is always interested in new routes.”

“However, we do not comment upon or engage in rumour or speculation,” Mr Elnaes concludes.
