Norske Luftruter - NLR

Norway

*

Norske Luftruter was founded in 1927, from the beginning acting as general and handling agent for Deutsche Luft Hansa. This agreement terminated in 1934 when the German airline made the new Norwegian national airline Det Norske Luftfartselskap, Fred. Olsen & Bergenske its general agent. Norske Luftruter seems to have operated jointly with Deutsche Luft Hansa on the route from Germany (eventually from Berlin) via Copenhagen and Gothenburg to Oslo during the first few years but later concentrated, in addition to being the DLH agent, on charter flights and joy rides within Norway.
