The routes include Israel, Hungary, Turkey, Italy and Poland, according to Dagens Næringsliv .
The largest new establishment is covered by Chinese Hainan Airlines, which fly direct flights between Beijing and Oslo. The company has been granted an application for three weekly flights to Norway. The route is well received in both the salmon industry and the tourist industry in Norway.
– For Norway, the connections will be of great importance. Norway is the country in the Nordic countries with the highest number of Chinese tourists. This trend has developed very positively in recent years. Therefore, it is natural that such a large and recognized airline as Hainan wants to open a direct connection to Oslo Airport, says Avinor’s communications manager Kristian Løka.
