XWind Releases Norwegian Kristiansund Airport

XWind Studios has partnered up with Jakub Lukaszewski to bring us one of the smaller, yet busy destinations in Norway, Kristiansund Airport (ENKB), located on the island of Nordlandet.

The airport is operated by Avinor, which has airports across the whole of Norway. It is mostly used by the two major Norwegian regional operators, Scandinavian and Wideroe. However, Kristiansund Airport also serves offshore helicopter traffic.

The first service began in 1935 and it was a part of the Bergen to Trondheim route operated by Norwegian Air Lines. Currently, Kristiansund Airport is mostly used for regional flights within Norway to Oslo and Bergen. However, during summer, seasonal charters are operated with Braathens Regional Airlines to Antalya and Chania.
