Flyservice AS was established in January 1993 to serve as General Sales Agent/GSA for foreign airlines not represented in Norway. Flyservice is now a subsidiary of Aircontact AS after acquisition.
The philosophy behind our company is primarily to serve the travel agencies and tour operators in Norway on behalf of the airlines we represent. This is done by mailings/e-mail updates, visits to the agencies to keep them updated with our newest fares and developments, seminars or local morning meetings as needed as well as educational and familiarization tours to selected destinations.
