Oslo City Council chief Raymond Johansen (AP) says Wizz Air’s business in Norway must be closed if there is a danger that Wizz Air could import infection to Norway.

It has now been a week since Wizz Air started flying domestically in Norway with planes and employees stationed at Oslo Airport.

Much of the business is based on using pilots and cabin crew from Poland, where there is much more corona infection than in Norway.

Johansen is worried that Wizz Air could be importing infection to Norway.

“Potential contagion bombs”

“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.

“The Minister of Health must intervene when it comes to Wizz Air. If they cannot give good answers, their business in Norway must be stopped immediately. We can not take such chances,” Johansen warned.

Five Wizz Air crew members on routes in Norway have tested positive for coronavirus in the last week.
