Norwegian (NAS) continues its expansion in the Nordic region, launching 34 new routes from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden to popular destinations all over Europe. The new routes will commence with the summer schedule starting in March 2012.
"Norwegian is a strong player in the Nordic market and a fast growing airline. Brand-new and more environmentally friendly aircraft with free in-flight WiFi has proven to be a success as more and more passengers choose to travel with us. With an expanding network, of nearly 300 routes, we are able to offer even more flexibility to our customers in terms of connecting flights,” said Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos.
As well as launching new routes, Norwegian adds more capacity to 40 of its most popular routes, particularly to destinations around the Mediterranean.
The addition of the new services means that Norwegian will offer a choice of over 297 routes connecting its bases across the Nordic region to key airports all over Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
When the new routes start in March 2012, 80 percent of Norwegian’s aircraft fleet will be WiFi equipped, making it easy for passengers to surf online at 30,000 feet.
Tickets for the new destinations will be available for sale at www.norwegian.com as of Wednesday 23 November.
