Twenty-seven percent say they are worried about their personal finances as a result of a pandemic. This is the highest level since April 2020.

In a June survey, 6 out of 10 Norwegians (57%) said they would spend their summer vacation only in Norway this year. This is an 8% increase from May.
“As summer approaches, this year’s Norwegian holidays seem to be improving. Strikes in the aviation industry will probably intensify that trend,” Klausen added.
