More and more travellers choose Norwegian
Our philosophy has won the hearts and minds of modern travellers – in Norway and abroad. Norwegian is one of Europe's fastest growing airlines, with almost 11 million passengers last year. This is an increase of 18 per cent compared with the previous year. In 2009 we also launched 63 new routes in Scandinavia: 30 in Denmark, 18 in Sweden and 15 in Norway. In June 2010, we reported our best passenger figures ever, with more than 1.2 million passengers flying with us.
We believe this success is a result of our combination of top-quality service, regularity and pleasantly low fares. You're most welcome to try us out! Read more about Norwegian.

Young, yet experienced
Some highlights from our history: Norwegian is a relatively young company, with its first commercial operations from 2002. However, the founders and most of the staff were among the most experienced in the business. The initial activities were based on the acquisition of parts of the reputable airline Busy Bee of Norway. Busy Bee was founded in 1966 and operated a variety of taxi, cargo, charter and wet-lease flights, the latter on behalf of the sister company Braathens S.A.F.E.
Through hard work, dedication, competitive prices, customer-friendly solutions and service, we have since emerged as the largest low-cost carrier in Scandinavia, the second largest airline in Scandinavia and the fourth largest low-cost carrier in Europe.
In short, Norwegian is a supremely professional, high-quality airline company you can rely on to get you to your destination on time – at a very competitive price.
In January 2009, Air Transport World (ATW) named Norwegian "Market Leader of the Year". The award recognized Norwegian for several achievements, such as:
- successful adaptation of the low-cost model to the Scandinavian air travel market
- low–fares strategy combined with cutting-edge technology, strongly emphasising customer-focused information technology
The ATW Airline Industry Achievement Awards are considered the Oscars of the industry.
In August 2008, SkyTrax named Norwegian the best low-cost carrier in Northern Europe. In April 2008, Norwegian was awarded a prize as the best Norwegian company in terms of public reputation, and for having the best management of all companies in Norway.
However, much more important than winning awards, is the daily recognition we receive from the thousands of passengers who choose to fly with us – again and again. No award can ever surpass that.
The best planes available
Our aircraft policy is simple: We go for the best – always! Norwegian will receive a total of 75 new state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 aircraft in the period 2008 to 2014. This will make Norwegian's fleet one of the most modern, efficient and environmentally friendly in commercial aviation – all factors contributing to making your journey as effective and pleasant as possible.
The Boeing 737-800 aircraft serves all routes in Norwegian's network, and seats 186 passengers.
The Boeing 737-800 is among the most environmentally friendly aircraft on the market, reducing per-seat CO2 emissions by 23 percent compared to the 737-300, and by as much as 33 percent compared to the MD80. The new aircrafts also improve operational reliability and regularity.
We strive to give you the best, always. Experience Norway – with us!
