FlyViking was a Norwegian regional airline that was based in Tromsø. The airline was founded in 1989 as Loftofly and flew as Fly Taxi Nord until it was taken over in 2015 by Ola O.K Giæver J in 2015 and renamed as FlyViking. FlyViking operated regional flights in the northern parts of Norway, serving 4 destinations in total. FlyViking flew to Hammerfest, Bodo, Tromsø and Alta. In February 2017, the airline was awarded a new AOC from the NCAA, the new AOC allowing FlyViking to transport more than 20 passengers one each flight.
In 2016, FlyViking lost the competition for a five-year contract by the Norwegian Ministry of Transport and Communications to operate 13 of Norway's Public Service Obligation routes starting in April 2017. FlyViking's goal was to provide scheduled operations on regional airports in Norway that can only be handled by regional aircrafts (aircrafts up to approx. 78 seats). FlyViking's initial fleet was built on DHC8 which is a set of aircraft models very well adapted to regional airports runway lengths and topografi. FlyViking offered a FullFlex ticket which is fully refundable up to 1 hour prior departure. Unfortunately, in January 2017 FlyViking ceased operations and all of its flights were taken over by Widerøe, a competing Norwegian airline. Please see below for alternative airlines to FlyViking.
