Flyvbird, marketed as flyv, announced strategic route development partnership with Sweden Norrköping Airport as it strengthens plans to deliver low-cost, on demand regional air services. Sweden will be the second country after Germany to embrace the innovative flyv model in an agreement that will start with its nine-seat Tecnam Traveller P2012 based at Norrköping. In line with its plans to be a carbon-free airport leader, Norrköping is exploring various sustainable initiatives and partnerships including its collaboration with flyv. It is currently working on an on-site solar installation project and is investigating opportunities to produce green hydrogen. 

Flyv CEO Anton Lutz, commented: “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. We have been speaking with the airport since the summer and they are completely on board with our philosophy.”

Svante Swärd Rudström, Business Development Manager at Norrköping Airport, said: “flyv offers a revolutionary approach to sustainable, on-demand regional air mobility and we’re thrilled to be embarking on this partnership with them.”  

flyv is committed to a vision of enhancing connectivity in rural areas of Europe - all utilising smaller, more accessible airports. Its innovative algorithmic approach to construct 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 up to 50-plus low-cost and reduced-emissions aircraft in the next decade, which it will adapt in line with customer demand.  The company this week signed a Letter of Intent with Eviation in the US to take 25 all-electric Alice aircraft, complementing the Electra.aero hybrid aircraft commuterliner. Operating on its own AOC, flyvbird will start with a core network within Europe starting with Germany as well as Sweden and additional
