PIA and Iran Air, I think.

SAS suspended the only long-haul flight to America after 9.11. That was Oslo-Newark.

PIA has the only long haul route from Oslo at the moment: twice a week with A310s into Karachi and Islamabad or Lahore.
Iran Air axed Oslo a while back.
SAS suspended Oslo/New York after Sep 11, and dont know when that will be back, hopefully sometime soon.
And in 1999, Northwest launched daily non-stop Minneapolis/Oslo DC10 service, but it only lasted a few months.

Delta used to serve Stockholm before 9/11 (I don't know if 9/11 was the reason it was stopped, it very well may be though), but as far as I know, have never served Oslo. It would be great if they did.

Delta served Oslo (Fornebu) after its takeover of PanAm's North Atlantic routes. However, they left in .. 95?
Even though PIA currently is the only longhaul scheduled carrier, there are some charter ops to the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Thailand. These routes are currently served with A330's from Premiair/MyTravel and Novair I beleive.

SAS was going to launch OSL-MIA flights at the end of 1989, but never got the approval they needed, so the flights never surfaced. Charter carrier Premair provides service from Oslo to Miami and the Caribbean.

There is also a weekly charter flight to Natal, Brazil operated by Britannia A/B with B763.

Airplanetire,

Yes, Delta stopped JFK-ARN because of 9/11. And AA stopped ORD-ARN for the same reason. So now SAS is the only airline left serving those two routes.

(Although I read one or both of them were near cancellation as well, but were saved by DL and AA pulling out)

Before 9/11 another american carrier was going to start scandinavian routes - OSL and GOT, but that plan was definately dropped after 9/11. I think it was Continental, but I could be mistaken. Anyway, after 9/11, there are no American carriers flying to Scandinavia.

Qatar Airways recently expanded their codeshare with LH out MUC. ARN and OSL are some of the destinations added. Maybe this is a sign of future service?

Continental had plans for a Oslo service, but this was put on ice due to 11.09
