The airline Wizz Air has sent notice of lawsuits against several Norwegian municipalities and counties, as well as the state-owned company Statnett, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports.

Wizz Air is suing those who have announced a boycott of the company, the airline announced in a press release, according to NRK.

Wizz Air has been criticized, among other things, for opposing unions. 

Several unions and other organizations have called for a boycott of the low-cost airline after they launched plans in October to start domestic flights in Norway. 

Wizz Air has sent lawsuit notices to Agder County Municipality, Møre og Romsdal County Municipality, Bergen Municipality, Viken County Municipality, Stord Municipality, Oslo Municipality, and Statnett, according to E24.

Boycott

“Wizz Air is reacting to the fact that elected local and regional bodies, and the state-owned company Statnett, have adopted a boycott without assessing the legality of the boycott and without any case preparation,” the airline wrote.

The recipients of the notification have been given a three-week response deadline.

Statnett told E24 that they have just received the lawsuit notice.

“Now we need time to get acquainted with what it contains,” communications director Henrik Glette said.
