Travel Retail Norway, which operates duty-free stores at Gardermoen, Værnes, Flesland, Sola, and Kjevik, is removing Russian-produced goods from its shelves.

“Five types of vodka are being removed,” communications manager Haakon Dagestad in Travel Retail Norway wrote in a message to Kampanje. The decision has been made in solidarity with Ukraine.

Kampanje also contacted Vinmonopolet on Monday. They say they comply with the Norwegian authorities’ recommendations and do not pursue their own policy on alcohol sales.

“If there is a recommendation not to sell Russian products, we will, of course, stop such sales,” communications director Halvor Bing Lorentzen stated.
