Norwegian Airlines announces summer expansion

Scandinavia’s largest budget airline, Norwegian, will be expanding its operations this summer.

The low-cost carrier has announced plans to add a new aircraft to its operations from Warsaw, as well as increase the frequency of flights on its network. The airline will be flying to five new destinations starting in June, bringing the total number of routes the airline serves from Poland up to 22.

Norwegian’s chief commercial officer, Daniel Skjeldam, said: “The added capacity will strengthen our position in Poland and allow us to grow even further. We will start four new routes linking Poland with Scandinavia, and one new route between Poland and Croatia. In addition we will add capacity on another five routes.”

He added, “The expansion reinforces our position as the leading carrier between Poland and Scandinavia, with over 100 weekly flights, and confirms that Norwegian’s product and prices are very well received in the Polish market.”

Norwegian began operations in September 2002 and has since become the largest budget airline in the region. Today, the airline flies 35 aircraft across a network of 141 routes, offering flights to 75 destinations. The company’s headquarters are located in Fornebu, Norway.
