There has been a storm of reactions to the Hungarian airline Wizz Air after they established themselves in Norway. The company itself says the reactions will not affect their investment.
“We have not received a reception like the one we have received in Norway in any other market in Europe. But this has no bearing on our (investment) commitment.
“We expect to spend up to five years establishing ourselves and making our business in Norway profitable,” marketing manager Johan Eidhagen told Flysmart24.
Since October, when the company launched plans to start domestic flights in Norway, the company has been targeted by critics, among other things, for the working conditions of the company’s employees.
Solberg supports boycott
Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) is among those who have supported a boycott of the company.
Eidhagen says that Wizz Air is very satisfied with the ticket sales on domestic routes in Norway.
As of today, the company has 118 employees connected to the company’s two bases in Norway, at Oslo Airport Gardermoen and Trondheim Airport Værnes, and 15 domestic routes.
On December 12, Wizz Air stated that the boycott campaigns against the company are “bullying,” and in violation of international law, according to newspaper Klassekampen.
