Norwegian Air International inches closer to launching its US services

On Friday, April 15, the US Department of Transportation finally issued an order proposing to grant a foreign air carrier permit to Norwegian Air International. When made final, the permit will allow Norwegian Air International to begin operations to the U.S., including the first-ever service between Boston and Cork, Ireland.

“A final approval, based on the Open Skies Agreement between the U.S. and EU, will be win-win for consumers and the economy on both sides of the Atlantic. It will allow Norwegian to expand our U.S. operations. Our continued presence in the U.S. will create thousands of jobs and generate tens of millions of dollars of economic activity for the Group’s US destinations,” said CEO Bjørn Kjos of Norwegian Group.

Norwegian states that it “intends to continue hiring hundreds of American-based crewmembers, bring hundreds of thousands of European tourists to the United States, continue to offer the American people affordable fares and efficiently utilize an $18.5 billion order of planes from American manufacturer Boeing.”
