The inaugural flight of the company Norwegian Air Shuttle was marked by a literal baptism of water, as two trucks from the Faro Airport’s fire department lined up alongside the main runway to give the flight DY464 a wet welcome as it touched down for the first time.

Norwegian Air Shuttle, following last Saturday’s maiden voyage to Faro, has announced it will now offer customers a weekly connection on a Boeing 737 (capacity of 148) to the Norwegian capital. As a promotional offer, the airline further revealed that return tickets will be sold at 160 euros.
Since 1995, the Faro Airport has seen visitors from Norway increase by an average six percent. In 2002, Norway had a share of 33 percent of the Scandinavian market in terms of supplying visitors to the Algarve.
The Saturday flight schedules are as follows: Oslo-Faro (13h25) and Faro-Oslo (14h25).
