Updated Flyr Airline News

Flyr Airline News. It’s very rare, in any industry, for the name of a company to perfectly embody its values and strategy. ‘Flyer’ is the Norwegian word for flying, aiming to spearhead simplicity in everything they do, and making it crystal clear that this is an airline built for travelers to and from Norway. It is simple, to the point, and challenges traditional conventions of air travel.

Flyr Airline Will Cease Operations

The Oslo-based airline launched in 2020 has announced there are no alternatives for further operations after being “unsuccessful with a new financing plan”. Flyr will file for bankruptcy on Wednesday morning, and it becomes the second European company to cease operations in January following the bankruptcy of UK-based Flybe’s collapse last week. Reports of Flyr being unsuccessful in its attempt to raise capital were published earlier this week. The airline was facing extreme pressure on its financial position and had been selling additional shares in recent months.

Flyr is a Norwegian airline created for travelers in Norway and built with size, organization and route offerings adapted to everyday life in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic. Everyone who works at Flyr is directly employed by the company, with Norwegian wages and working conditions. We now have over 300 employees, many of whom have extensive experience from companies such as SAS, Norway, Widerøe and Braathens.

Flyr Airline News and Updates

Flyr Airline News, a subsidiary of Flyer Holdings based in the United States, announced today that it will be launching a new service called “Flyer Airline News” to help passengers stay up-to-date on flight delays and other issues affecting their travel plans. The airline will send text messages to passengers’ cell phones when there is an issue with their flight such as delays or cancellations.

Flyr, which started operations in mid-2021 to serve domestic destinations in Norway as well as in Europe, said on Monday weak financial markets and uncertainty over air travel demand had prevented it from raising more money. In November, Flyr said securing more funds was critical to surviving the winter and preparing for spring and summer 2023, but was only able to raise about half of the cash needed then.
