On Monday, FRP announced it would meet Minister of Transport Knut Arild Hareide (KrF) and Minister of Trade and Industry Iselin Nybø (V) to discuss how to save the airline Norwegian from bankruptcy.
The meeting took place on Tuesday.
The theme of the meeting was how to avoid an aviation monopoly in Norway, as well as a discussion on the government’s measures that could save Norwegian from bankruptcy.
“FRP has invited Hareide and Nybø to the meeting so that we can get some concrete points on the table on how to avoid an aviation monopoly in Norway,” Listhaug said, adding that it was good that the ministers made the time for the meeting.
An airline monopoly would make travel even more difficult for those who live in the rural areas of Norway, and who are dependent on aircraft.
A monopoly could result in poorer service, higher prices, and fewer departures.
