Rygge Civil Airport (RSL) has not reached agreements with airlines that provide enough passengers to open Rygge Airport in 2020. The opening is therefore postponed until 2021.

This is stated by RSL in a press release. The negotiations with a number of airlines in recent months have shown an interest in creating routes from the airport, according to the company.

The main reason for the postponement is the lack of capacity on the part of the airlines due to delays in deliveries of new aircraft. As a result, airlines have not been able to offer enough routes and passengers for take-off in 2020, according to RSL.

“On the basis of this, Rygge Civil Airport AS has decided to continue its work on entering into traffic agreements with the airlines with the aim of opening Rygge Airport in the spring of 2021,” the press release states.
