According to this announcement posted on the news webpage of Malta International Airport earlier today, Norwegian Air Shuttle starts flying the Oslo-Malta route in April 2008, twice weekly (Tuesdays and Saturdays).

Norwegian AS becomes the third operator on the relatively busy Oslo-Malta route.

Air Malta already flies Oslo-Malta twice weekly, with additional flights during the peak season. Scandinavian SAS operates a weekly Oslo-Malta charter flight on Saturdays, between April to October.

Ryanair has said several times over the last year or so that it is also interested in operating between Malta and Oslo's Torp airport.

And Air Malta will AFAIK stop serving OSL.


Other Norwegian Air Shuttle news:

- Northport has been "fired" as Norwegian's handling agent at OSL after been constantly delivering their services below the required standards

- Norwegian and Sterling has abandoned their last codeshare route, OSL-CPH and Norwegian will increease OSL-CPH to 5 daily flights, while Sterling will increase to 4 daily flights. This comes in addition to SAS 13 daily flights on the route and competition will be fierce

This is great news! From where will SAS start their regular flights to Malta? ARN will be a definite success given the rather large number of Swedes living on Malta. Although FR starts NYO-MLA at the end of this month, some of my Swedish friends told me that they do not want to fly to NYO: it is inconvenient for them; they want to fly to ARN. Air Malta seems to be closing ARN soon. GOT, MMX and OSL would be viable in my view, even though JetX already operates charters to ARN, GOT and MMX.
CPH and BLL are slightly different in that between them, Jet time and Sterling have 5 weekly charter flights between MLA and Denmark.

SAS had regular flights (on Sundays) from ARN in summer 2005 and I flew them on MLA-ARN-OER-ARN, ARN-OER, and UME-ARN-LHR, and I really liked them. I had flown SAS twice before between FRA and CPH and I think they're really cool. Jag tycker mycket om SAS!  wink  It's so good that at the end of the month they also start flying between CPH and DXB.

Vi ses snart i Malta!

From OSL. This is part of SK Norway´s new attack on the leisure market (and i guess the LCCs). There was a thread here about SK opening 12 new routes from OSL, but i am not able to open it (i guess the site still isn´t working properly after the server-move).
