Corona cases have been detected on a total of 31 flights during the last week, according to the National Institute of Public Health (FHI).

Twenty-two of the flights in the period between September 14 and September 20 were domestic flights, while nine were flights between Norway and abroad, the overview from the FHI shows.

Of the domestic flights in the overview, seven of the departures came from Oslo, five from Bodø, and three from Bergen and Tromsø. For international flights, departures are distributed between the cities of Zagreb, Moscow, Tirana, Frankfurt, Gdansk, Copenhagen, Istanbul, and Pristina.

The Norwegian Institute of Public Health pointed out that the risk of infection is considered low for other passengers, based on experience from Norway and other countries.

“When traveling with a seat reservation, passengers who have been in the vicinity of a person with confirmed infection are contacted directly by local health authorities. These passengers are informed about further follow-up in connection with infection tracing,” the FHI stated.
