Norwegian Airlines increases its fleet

Oslo, Dec 5 (Prensa Latina) Norwegian Airlines reported an increase in its aircraft fleet after signing an agreement to rent two Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.

A report published in European electronic newsletter Preferente added that the agreement is a major step in the company’s plan to build an efficient and modern fleet for the future. The flexibility of energy per hour will allow the airline to manage its capacities better during the low season, adjusting to variations in seasonal demand.

Norwegian CEO Geir Karlsen explained that the delivery of the aircraft will begin soon to make it possible to comply with the 2022 summer flight program consisting of 270 routes.

He noted that the lease term for each aircraft is nine years. ‘Norwegian’ also has the option of replacing the 737 MAX 8 aircraft in question with new-technology narrow-body aircraft from Airbus.

Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA, known as Norwegian, is a Norwegian airline, the fourth largest low-cost airline in Europe in 2019, and the second in Scandinavia.
