I'm Brazilian and I'm planning to visit Norway and Sweden. I'm planning on making the internal trips through Wideroe and I noticed the prices for youths (12-25 years old) are cheaper.

Since I will still be 24, I wonder if this kind of discount is applicable to foreigners like me or if there are some other special conditions, since I don't want to have a surprise at the airport.

Googling or searching the official website about it doesn't have much information on the topic.

I can't speak to this specific airline, but I've used other European airlines' youth fares before despite not being a European. Hopefully you'll be able to as well. –  dlanod May 26 at 1:34

According to Widerøe Ticket types, there is no restriction on the nationality of the customer:

This seems the right answer. I actually purchased the youth ticket, in the purchasing process there is another text saying practically the same, it also mentions that they may ask to verify your age, but mentions nothing about the nationality of the passenger. –  André Santaló May 28 at 16:01
