Oh I do, but Im not an expert at everything! BUT, since you are so experienced in Northern Norway and THEN brag about how easy it is. It tells me a lot about you..
Im not saying it requires astronaut-skills either. Im saying it takes more than just any half decent experienced pilot with an OCC and Line-training.
Just because you have been in and out of those airports a few times doesnt mean you know it all. Take it down a notch will you? Its not that easy as you say. On a sunny day, of course it is.

Im reacting to someone who thinks he knows it all.

Let's put it in a way that you can understand. Any pilot with more than a couple of thousand hours (5000 is the minimum for the lhs from what I see) with average skills, proper discipline, the support of a competent training dept and and decent sops can handle winter ops in Norway or anywhere else for that matter.
I did, and I am nothing if not an average pilot at best.
Now, I can understand that it might hurt the ego of someone, but I am sure you will cope.

Most guys i know in the charter industry (mostly 737 and A320) flown all over Norway all the way up to Svalbard and it was mostly first time for all of them when they were scheduled to do so.

This sort of reminds me of my first visit to Bardufoss on 16.02.65. It was snowing like hell and we broke out at minimums from a PAR approach. Landed on a runway with snow rolled flat with gravel scattered on top. On either side were snow banks about 10 - 15 feet high.

Next morning, we got ready to leave and there, with its nose buried deep in one of the snow banks was an SAS DC-7C. When they got it out, the nose gear was bent sideways.

I can remember thinking that we had probably done quite well compared to the highly-experienced local and very experienced airline but, as my long flying career evolved, I realised that it could have just as easily been me with my nose stuck in the snow drift.

If you want to have as successful a flying career as I had over 53 years, do not ever think that operating safely is easy and, if you are a "local", do not think that you are better than an astronaut.

So, for FOs it’s basically a voluntary role when you consider the cost of living in Norway. I’m sure they will be swamped with applications though.

Let’s put it this way: I can apply for a job as a cashier at the grocery store down the road and earn quite a bit more for less work.

This has to be just the basic, right? How much are they paying every flight duty hour and block flight time or perdiems?

With Norwegian cost of living, that is really poor.

Historically the FO salaries have been around 60% of a captain's salary. Recent years I have started to see numbers dropping to around 50%. I wonder if this will be the new post covid era where they lower the FO salaries even further. 40% of a Captain's salary is low and correct me if I am wrong but I think the baggage loaders make more money than this at Gardemoen. We haven't seen the flight duty and per diems yet and maybe they will compensate so you as an airline has lower base rate.

You think the unions in Norway would make this impossible to happen.

It's been made very clear that OSM are merely in charge of recruitment but that all positions will be direct employment with Flyr the mother company.
