International flights to Svalbard
The Civil Aviation Authority may again consider applications for international flights to Svalbard Airport Longyear.
Since 2020, due to health and rescue preparedness on Svalbard, no permits have been granted for non-scheduled flights to/from Svalbard Airport Longyear. Following amendments to the covid-19 regulations that came into force at midnight on 1 March 2022, the Ministry of Transport and Communications has now repealed the temporary instruction that has restricted international air traffic to/from Svalbard Airport Longyear.
This means that the Civil Aviation Authority again will consider applications for international non-scheduled flights to/from Svalbard.
