The Hungarian airline will continue pushing its lawsuits for illegal boycott in Norway, despite the company’s decision to drop its investment in Norwegian domestic routes, newspaper E24 reports.
In February, Wizz Air announced that it is suing Agder County Municipality for an illegal boycott decision after the airline previously notified lawsuits against several Norwegian municipalities and counties.
Wizz Air believes it is facing an illegal boycott. Thus, the company is proceeding with the lawsuit.
“The fact that Wizz Air is leaving the Norwegian domestic market will not affect the case, which remains relevant given that the airline continues to operate significant capacity to and from Norway,” communications director Andras Rado wrote in an email to E24.
Court case to take place in August
The case against Agder County Municipality will be heard in August.
The Hungarian airline will discontinue domestic traffic in Norway from June 14, but it will maintain its offer related to flights abroad.
Lawyer Nils Kristian Lie, who represents Agder County Municipality in the case, reacted to Wizz Air’s decision to keep the lawsuit active.
“I find it surprising,” Lie said.
