FO/FOF/FREDOLSEN.

A/S Fred. Olsens Flyselskap (FOF), trading internationally as Fred. Olsen Airtransport, was a Norwegian charter airline which operated between 1946 and 1997, largely operating cargo aircraft. Based at Oslo Airport, Fornebu, it was created as a spin-off of Norwegian Air Lines and was part of Fred. Olsen & Co., which owned it through its subsidiaries Ganger Rolf and Bonheur.

The airline commenced operations with Douglas C-47 aircraft, operating out of Fornebu and Copenhagen Airport. It introduced a Douglas DC-4, Vickers Viscounts and Curtiss C-46 Commandos during the mid-1950s. These were in part superseded by the Douglas DC-6 during the 1960s and finally the Lockheed L-188 Electra from the mid-1970s. A major customer was Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS), for whom Fred. Olsen operate most of night cargo flights.

Fred. Olsen had a significant business in corporate jets between 1967 and 1978, using four Dassault Falcon 20s. It held a contract with the Civil Aviation Administration to operate its calibration aircraft, from 1967 a Convair CV-340, from 1976 a Hawker Siddeley HS.748 and from 1996 a de Havilland Canada Dash 8. The airline ceased operations in 1997. It suffered four write-off accidents.
