New purchasing agreement for airline tickets in the Norwegian government
The Norwegian Agency for Public and Financial Management (DFØ) has entered into a new joint agreement for the purchasing of airline tickets in the government sector.
The agreement has been made with the following eight suppliers:
- Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS)
- Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA
- Flyr AS
- Air France / KLM
- Qatar Airways
- Turkish Airlines
- Ethiopian Airlines
The joint agreement covers the purchasing of airline tickets, both domestically and abroad, and has been entered into per flight and cabin class (economy, premium economy and business). All in all, the agreement covers 327 flight routes and 629 associated contract areas.
For each of these flight routes, the government sector will be given an automatic discount when bookings are made through the travel agency provider of a government agency or organization. The discount is deducted as a percentage based on the current ticket price, and the price shown to the individual traveler at the moment of booking is the final price after discount.
DFØ have not asked for special benefits to be applied in the agreement (such as, for example, fast-track or baggage included). This means that beyond the automatic discount, the traveler will need to follow the general ticketing rules of the individual airline.
Goverment regulations about service travel
The state personnel manual regulates the rules on service claims. Point 9.2. Special agreement on the coverage of expenses for travel and food at home has provisions that regulate travel for employees. The agreement with Norwegian is binding and should be used as far as possible, but travel time can be considered in relation to what is the most affordable.

Orders through the agreement can only be made through the organization’s travel agency provider, either in the self-service portal or by phone. Please note that direct bookings with the airlines is not possible.
The airlines and flight routes that NTNU have an agreement with will be specially marked in Berg-Hansen's self-service portal.
