Wizz Air lost in court to Agder County Municipality, according to Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK). The Hungarian airline demanded that the county leadership be convicted of an illegal boycott.
Wizz Air took the County to court because it encouraged its 3,000 employees not to use Wizz Air on business trips. The reason behind the Country’s encouragement was, among other things, that the company opposed trade unions.
The airline believes they have lost a market share and reputation. Due to the corona pandemic, it has been difficult to calculate financial losses, and the company only demanded that the boycott be ruled illegal. But they failed.
Wizz Air now must also pay the County’s legal costs of almost NOK 340,000.
The airline discontinued domestic traffic in Norway on June 14 but maintained its international travel operations in the country.
