Oslo, Norway-based low-cost carrier has ceased trading after failing to secure backing for its new financial plan leaving the board with no viable alternatives.

The airline was set up in 2020 by Erik G. Braathen who previously ran Braathens before its subsequent collapse in 2004.

Flyr operated flights to two UK airports, Edinburgh (EDI/EGPH) and London Gatwick (LGW/EGKK) from its base in Oslo.

On its website, the airline said: “Flyr was unsuccessful with the new financial plan and the board has concluded that there are no alternatives for further operation. The company filed for bankruptcy 1 Feb 2023. Flyr has now ceased trading and all flights are cancelled and will not be rescheduled.

“Many thanks to everyone who has chosen to fly with us over the past year and a half. We will miss you all from the bottom of our hearts and deeply apologize to everyone affected by the fact that we now have to go in for landing.

“We encourage everyone who has booked a ticket with us to contact their credit card company for a refund.

“The bankruptcy trustee has now taken over all responsibility for Flyr going forward, and can be contacted via email [email protected]. Please note that this is the only channel open for any questions and information.”

The airline operated 12 aircraft, 6 Boeing 737-800 and 6 Boeing 737 Max 8.
