Norwegian, the Low-cost behemoth is a major player.
Since its inception in the year 1993, Norwegian has grown to become the second largest airline in Scandinavia and the third largest in Europe and employs upwards of 5,500 people. Today, Norwegian operates out of 17 different airports, with the most traffic going in and out of native Oslo Airport in Norway. The airline operated 450 routes in 2017 throughout 35 countries in Europe, Africa the Middle East, Thailand and North America. Out of its many routes, 20 of them are to domestic locations – a testament to how vast Norway truly is.
Norwegian operates a mix of Boeing and Airbus aircraft. For the past few years, it has been possible for international travelers to treat themselves with some quality air time in the vaunted Boeing 787 Dreamliner on Norwegian’s long-haul flights. While most domestic flights only have economy class seats, Premium Class seats are available on most longer flights. On top of this, the “red-nose” airline has a young and environmentally efficient fleet, with an average aircraft age of 3,6 years.
The fleet is easily recognizable across airports due to its bright red nose and colors as well as the characteristic décor on the tail of their planes, where there are portraits of Norwegian and Scandinavian historical figures who challenged the status quo and inspired people to do likewise. In their spirit, Norwegian continues to push the envelope to ensure low-cost while maintaining a unique Scandinavian feel for quality and style.
