Norwegian Sets Up Repatriation Flights to Tel Aviv

Norwegian has announced it will set up an extra flight from Tel Aviv to Oslo. The flight is tentatively scheduled to fly Norwegian and other Nordic citizens out of Israel tonight (Wednesday). Norwegian is operating this flight on behalf of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to help passengers stranded in Israel.

Update: Norwegian has announced it will set up another extra repatriation flight from Tel Aviv to Oslo with a tentative departure on Thursday afternoon.

Travelers who wish to join this Norwegian flight in Tel Aviv should contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. To request emergency flight service, write to the following email address: Publikumstjenesten.Krisestab@mfa.no.

Norwegian is one of many airlines worldwide to suspend regular flights to Israel due to the conflict, which began with Hamas attacks over the weekend. The airline canceled its scheduled flights from Copenhagen and Stockholm to Tel Aviv and the return flights through October 19.

This August, the Norwegian Government awarded Norwegian Air Shuttle a four-year framework agreement for the defense sector’s flights in Norway and the Nordic region. The agreement is worth approximately NOK 1.0 billion (USD 98 million).

The contract with the Defense Logistics Organization (FLO) is one of the largest flight agreements in Norway. It comes into force in the first quarter of 2024. It covers Norwegian’s route network in Norway and the Nordic region. The Ministry of Defense (FD), the Armed Forces and Defense Materiel (FMA), and the National Security Agency (NSM) will all make use of the framework agreement.
