In October Ryanair starts daily flights to London from Oslo. It can lead to price competition and lower fares for world travelers.
Ryanair shuts down business from the Moss Airport, Rygge, in a few months. The Irish company will continue to fly from the Sandefjord, Torp, in addition to that from October 30th they start with daily flights to London from Oslo’s main airport.
That means a total of 16 aircraft will head to the English capital every single day, writes newspaper Finansavisen.
There is a capacity increase of 1,134 more seats daily. Today there is SAS, Norwegian and British Airways who transport passengers traveling to London with 13 daily departures.
More departures could lead to a tough price war. Ryanair’s cheapest tickets cost 156 kroner one way, and Norwegian have already lowered their prices.
SAS has also cut prices, and the company and says it is unacceptable to cut some of their daily flights to London, despite increased competition on the route.
Last year 1,057,000 passengers flew between Oslo Gardermoen and London.
