Ryanair to add routes to Oslo

Budget airline Ryanair said yesterday it was adding seven new routes to and from Oslo airport, as it seeks to avoid passing on fuel surcharges to passengers.<br /><br />Ryanair&rsquo;s new routes from Oslo (Rygge) to Alicante, Barcelona (Girona), Brussels (Charleroi), Bremen, London (Stansted), Madrid and Milan (Bergamo), will take off in October, and will fly more than 500,000 passengers a year, the company said. The flights will also create 500 new jobs in Rygge Airport, and sustain 1,300 &ldquo;local jobs,&rdquo; it added. Many airlines are slashing flights and routes in the downturn.
