Emirates has expanded its Scandinavian reach with the start of a daily non-stop service to Oslo. The new route will be operated with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
The inaugural flight was welcomed by Avinor CEO Dag Falk-Petersen, along with partners from the travel trade. A contingent of Norwegian business leaders based in Dubai also accompanied senior Emirates representatives on the inaugural flight.
Thierry Antinori, executive vice president and chief commercial officer said: “Our new service to Oslo will play an important role in developing new opportunities for major Norwegian industries through enhanced connectivity. Additionally, more Norwegian travellers will be able to discover Dubai’s cosmopolitan world- class attractions via Emirates’ direct daily service.”
