Following the introduction of the new air passenger duty on Wednesday, the most popular trips will be more expensive.

This includes full morning flights on weekdays, and on flights to popular vacation destinations in the school holidays, newspaper VG reports.

The new tax involves an airline passenger fee of 88 kroner for all domestic flights and 80 kroner for traveling abroad.

Norwegian states that the fee will be visible when you book a trip, since it is a statutory fee.

– However, it is not so that all departures are automatically 88 kroner more expensive. There is still supply and demand that govern prices, which means that the price of the most popular departures could be adjusted somewhat, while the less popular will maybe go something down, says communications director Lasse Sandakerveien-Nielsen.

SAS has so far added 88 kr and 80 kr to the ticket prices, but they say that they will also put the total price by supply and demand, and that the most popular departures will be more expensive.

Norwegian will shortly decide whether they will invoice the fee on trips booked after June 1, which have been already paid. SAS has decided not to do this.
