Dubai-based airline Emirates has announced that it will start daily flights to Oslo, Norway from 2 September 2014
A flight will be operated by a three-class B777-300ER configured with eight first, 42 business and 310 economy class seats.
Emirates SkyCargo will offer 23 tonnes of cargo capacity between the Dubai and Oslo.
Popular commodities would be oil and gas equipment, maritime and ship spares, pharmaceuticals, seafood, chemicals, electronics, telecommunication equipment, machinery, dairy products and fruits and vegetables bound for the Asian market, according to Emirates.
Tim Clark, president of Emirates said, “Norway’s resilient economy is built on strong foundations including its dynamic oil, gas, fishing, telecoms and maritime sectors. We believe Emirates’' Oslo service will further stimulate growth including trade, tourism and investment flows into the country by providing critical air links with emerging markets in the Middle East, Far East, West Asia and Africa.”
Scandinavian travellers would also benefit from this new service, especially residents of Norway and Sweden. These nations don’t enjoy a varied range of long-haul flight services to the Middle East unlike Holland, France, Germany and UK, stated the company.
