Re: Nordic Aviation - 2019

What has Virgin Atlantic to do with Nordic Aviation? The Nordic countries are, Denmark (including Farör and Greenland) Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. It is relevant to Nordic aviation in that Virgin Atlantic is envisioning routes to OSL, CPH, HEL, GOT, and ARN, no? But most of the expansion h...

Re: SAS growth in the future
