flyvbird, dba flyv, has formed a strategic route development partnership with Sweden’s Norrköping airport as it strengthens plans to deliver low cost, on-demand regional air services. Sweden is the second country after Germany to embrace the flyv model in an agreement that will start with its nine seat Tecnam Traveller P2012.

“As we roll out flyv, it is vitally important to have supportive airport partners who can help us position and market our services and help us attract investors,” says CEO Anton Lutz. “We have been speaking with the airport since the summer and it is completely on board with our philosophy.”

Situated 135km southwest of Stockholm, Norrköping airport has welcomed flyv’s commitment to sustainable air travel. Business development manager Svante Swärd Rudström says: “flyv offers a revolutionary approach to sustainable, on-demand regional air mobility and we’re thrilled to be embarking on this partnership with it.”

In line with its plans to be a carbon-free airport leader, Norrköping is exploring various other sustainable initiatives and partnerships. It is currently working on an on-site solar installation project and is investigating opportunities to produce green hydrogen.

flyv is committed to enhancing connectivity in rural areas of Europe utilising smaller, more accessible airports. Its algorithmic construction of custom-made flight networks on decentralised airport routes and its app-based, on-demand air taxi services have been designed to give the passenger greater flexibility and efficiency as well as competitive fares.

Starting initially with a fleet of four Tecnam P2012 Travellers, flyv plans to grow its fleet to more than 50 low cost and reduced-emissions aircraft over the next decade. It recently signed a letter of intent with Eviation to take 25 all-electric Alice aircraft, complementing the Electra.aero hybrid aircraft commuter-liner that it has also committed to.

Operating on its own AOC, flyvbird’s network within Europe starts with Germany and Sweden. It is preparing to launch operations at the end of 2024.
