Summer 2022 for new Norwegian airline.
First announced in March of this year (See BTN 29 March Long-haul low-cost) Norse Atlantic Airways is pressing ahead with plans for the launch of its low-cost long-haul operations next summer.
The company believes that demand for transatlantic travel will be back by the second quarter of next year and anticipates that all 15 Boeing 787 Dreamliners it has committed to will be operating between Europe and the United States this time next year.
“We strongly believe that there is a need for a new and innovative airline serving the low-cost intercontinental market with modern, more environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient aircraft as the world gradually reopens.
“Our plans are on track and operations will commence when travel restrictions are lifted and demand for transatlantic travel is back,” said Norse Atlantic Airways Chief Executive, Bjørn Tore Larsen. Larsen was a co-founder of crew management company OSM Aviation.
“Based on the current situation, we anticipate that all our 15 Dreamliners will be flying customers between Europe and the United States next summer,” he added.
“We will launch our ticket sales approximately three months prior to first flight and will offer exciting destinations that have proven to be attractive.”
