Five Wizz Air crew members on routes in Norway have tested positive for coronavirus.
“Five of our crew members have tested positive, and three of them are already on the road to recovery.
“The last two will be tested again on Thursday. Everyone is isolated in line with Norwegian regulations,” information director Andras Rado at Wizz Air wrote in an email to newspaper Dagens Næringsliv.
It has now been a week since the company started flying domestically in Norway with planes and employees stationed at Oslo Airport.
Business based on Polish crews
Much of the business is based on using pilots and cabin crew from Poland, where there is much more corona infection than in Norway.
Oslo City Council chief Raymond Johansen (AP) says the business in Norway must be closed if there is a danger that Wizz Air could import infection to Norway.
“More than 100 municipalities in Norway have already imported infections from Poland. The planes from there can be potential contagion bombs, and Wizz Air could be a super spreader,” Johansen told DN.
He believes the company is acting irresponsibly.
