From 1 June 2016, RusLine airlines will launch a regular service from Saint Petersburg’s Pulkovo airport to Oslo after services between the two destinations were suspended in October 2015.
The new flights will be operated four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays until the end of the summer season using Bombardier CRJ-200 aircraft.
Alexander Krutov, the deputy director general of commerce for RusLine, emphasised, “It is a great honour and a great responsibility for us to open the Pulkovo?Oslo route together with our long-term partner Northern Capital Gateway LLC. The first sales results have already confirmed the route’s relevance. Norway attracts Russian tourists with its amazing nature, distinctive cities, and picturesque views. Transit time and convenient schedules are some of the most decisive factors for travellers.”
