Aurora Borealis Norway: daily into Denmarks capital

Hei fra Norge!


It was an intensive weekend with the successful launch of both the Airline and the Nordic Alliance.

Aurora Borealis Norway is running quite amazing right now after we reach a SLF of nearly 93% to the beginning of the week.

As the 28th of March appears, we are glad to announce our new daily service to Copenhagen Kastrup Airport (CPH).

The flight is operated by a brand new CS300-Aircraft LN-AAA "Hååkon of Norway" in the evenings.

The departure time offers great opportunities for connections out of our domestic destinations to continue to Denmark.

Some other changes expandings in the schedule are already done:

The service to Tromso Vaernes (TOS) increased by 3 flights weekly, so we get 10x/week.

Stay tuned and welcome on board,


CEO Aurora Borealis Norway


Aurora Borealis Norway: 14x more to Norways North


Hei fra Norge!

Domestic Flights are very important in Norway as the country is long, the mountains are high and the fjords are deep.

Especially "Finnmark", the northernmost part of the country needs flight connections to bring people down to Oslo and back again.

After a lot of operational changes, we are proud to announce two new destinations in Northern Norway!

1.) Alta Airport (ALF), daily with a CS300

2.) Bardufoss Airport (BDU), daily with a CS300

According to this new destinations, we expanded the services on following routes:

Bodo (BOO): now 5 additional flights per week

Tromso (TOS): now 2x daily

Copenhagen Kastrup Airport (CPH): 5 additional flights per week, leaving CPH in the early morning for great connections from our hub OSL.

It is obviously that we had to close the first destinations as we are opening new ones. 

All flights to Helsinki (HEL) and Frankfurt (FRA) are not sold longer, the schedule to Stavanger (SVG), Bergen (BGO) and Molde (MOL).

These changes are due to low demand.

We are looking forward for the next week and hopefully for a new aircraft as well!

Best wishes,

Luke, CEO Aurora Borealis Norway


Aurora Borealis Norway: Expanding network from Oslo


Hei fra Norge!

Since we got our new aircraft "Johannes Hoesfloet Klaebo", a Dash-8-300A, we tried to open a network around the Nordnorwegian City Tromso.

Because we failed quite hard, we decided to cancel all flights up there and move the aircraft down to our hub Oslo Gardermoen and start regional flights from there.

Since this week, we offer very smooth flights to some small airports in southern Norway:

Kristiansund (KSU): 4x weekly

Orsta-Volda (HOV): 4x weekly

Molde (MOL): we swiched the operating aircraft from former DC-9 to the smaller Dash 8-300, now daily service again.

Floro (FRO): daily

Sogndal (SOG): 4x weekly

Sandnessjoen (SSJ): 3x weekly

Forde (FDE): 3x weekly

These flights are running well so we expect to keep up the service!

Due to the configuration in our game world, Aurora Borealis Norway is going to try the Ilyushin IL18-D as well.

Even if our strategy is to focus on modern aircrafts, we want to see how big the difference is and if it can help us to grow faster, transport more passengers but have them as happy as in a modern CS300.

3 Ilyushin IL18-D have been ordered and they are starting their service from next weekend on different routes we are already serving as well as on five new destinations abroad.

This is just a test, if we succeed, we are going to replace these aircrafts as soon as possible.

The new aircrafts are:

LN-ADY "Magnus Carlsen"

LN-ADZ "Martin Odegaard"

LN-AEA "Kjetil Jansrud"

These A/C are not replacing other aircrafts in the actual flight plan, we just offer additional services.

The routes with increased services are:

Evenes Harstad/Narvik (EVE): now 2x daily

Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS): now 2x daily

Kristiansand (KRS): now 2x daily

The new international routes are following:

Zurich (ZRH): 6x weekly

Munich (MUC): daily

Vienna (VIE): daily

Barcelona (BCN): daily

Madrid (MAD): daily

Let´s see how the Sowiet-Aircraft is going to perform ;-)

Aurora Borealis Norway: Expanding network from Oslo


Hei fra Norge!


Our test with the IL-18-Aircraft was successful so we decided to expand our operations with 5 more aircrafts of this type:


LN-AGE: IL18D (Roald Amundsen)

LN-AGF: IL18D (Henrik Ibsen)

LN-AGG: IL18D (Edvard Munch)

LN-AGH: IL18D (Niels Hendrik Abel)

LN-AGI: IL18D (Astrid Lindgren)


Two things are quite special when we bought and named them.

First and quite important is, that LN-AGE and LN-AGF are just replacing the DC-9-31-aircrafts, that's why they have the same name as the DC-9 had before.

LN-AGI is named after the famous Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren because the A/C is going to be based in Stockholm Arlanda.


New Hub in Stockholm Arlanda (ARN):

With one IL-18D based in Stockholm and increased flights to the Swedish Capital from Oslo, we opened the first hub beside Oslo Gardermoen.

Following routes are planned in the beginning as we start the services from 29/4/17:


Luleå Kallax (LLA): daily, connections for flights to Oslo and Barcelona (ABN 168, ABN2001)

Barcelona El Prat (BCN): daily, connections for flights from Oslo (ABN 167)

Trondheim Vaernes (TRD): 5x weekly


We are looking froward to this adventure and hope we can expand soon!

As well to our own connections, we can offer a huge network in Stockholm with our alliance- and interliningpartners.

The network in Barcelona is also quite impressive for both flights from Oslo and Stockholm.


Expaning in Oslo

Lots of the existing routes in Oslo have been expanded with more flights since we got more aircrafts.

New routes in the network are:


Billund (BLL): operated daily with the IL18D

Kirkenes (KKN): operated daily with the IL18D


Seeyou soon with new informations!
