Armed guards on planes to Norway
Armed guards are onboard non-European passenger planes in route to and from Norway, confirmed Aviation Director Per-Arne Skogstad, according to the Norwegian paper VG.
According to the paper, the armed guards are onboard planes from Pakistan International Airlines and Aeroflot. Both airlines fly regularly to Oslo International Airport.
American Continental Airlines has now been granted permission to have armed security personnel on board the daily flight between Oslo and New York. According to Skogstad, the guards will be in place soon.
«We allow other countries to come to Norway with armed guards, but we do not wish to have armed personnel onboard Norwegian planes,» Skogstad said.
