There is not room for 4.
3 has been tried many times before and has not worked. The only things that has worked has been the duopolies of SAS/Braathens and SAS/Norwegian.
FLYR can get amazing leasing deals and low operating cost with a great, experienced crew.
They will have the lowest real cost, and hopefully/probably a high quality operation.
Let’s not forget that their team consists of some very key people that has run Norwegian/Braathens/SAS with surplus domestically before.
Wizz might not make it. I think they have limitas to how much money they bother losing on such an insignificant country. They are under a boycott that stretches even out to the far right of politics because of their employment policies.
A company like LIDL lasted for a very short time, and there has been numerous examples of large international companies failing in getting a foothold in Norway because of pure nationalistic pride over a few things Norwegians keep holy.
Air transport along the coast, a life nerve, bloodline, a system of airborne all-weather Vikings doing the job real norwegians has done for thousands of years a long the coast is not left to a «bunch of corona-infected gay-hating non-unionized poles» as a family-member put it blunt.
People are not, rightly or wrongly, ready for Wizz.
SAS and Norwegian we know most there is to know about, but lets remember that the domestic norwegian market has always made good money for both of them.
Is there space for a 4th domestic carrier in Norway, alongside SAS, Wideroe and Wizz ? (and that's assuming Norwegian doesn't surprise us all by somehow surviving)
The population of Norway may have high propensity to fly due to the geography, but there's only so much traffic to go round all the carriers
Separately, on BRA, they used to fly Trollhattan-Stockholm 3x daily due (in part) to Trollhattan being their engineering centre (I think). Is Trollhattan planned to retain this role for BRA ?
