Norwegian Airline Agreement Code

Norwegian launched long-haul flights on May 30, 2013. [69] The first planned Norwegian long-haul flights were from Oslo and Stockholm to New York and Bangkok, originally equipped with a water-leased Airbus A340-300, while the airline awaited delivery of its new Boeing 787 Dreamliner. In March 2013, Norwegian Air Shuttle confirmed the new long-haul routes from Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, effective November 29, 2013. [70] Norwegian Air Shuttle (NAS) was founded on 22 January 1993 to take over the regional airlines produced by Busy Bee for Braathens in western Norway. Founded in 1966, Busy Bee was a subsidiary of Braathens, which operated a fleet of Fokker 50 aircraft on charter services. These included a network of regional services between cities on the west coast of Norway, which were operated on wet leasing for the parent company. After the bankruptcy of Busy Bee in December 1992, NAS took over three rented fokker 50 aircraft and took over operations at Bergen Airport, Flesland at Haugesund Airport, Karméy, as well as from Bergen to Molde Airport, Kristiansund Airport, Kvernberget, and Trondheim Airport, Vérnes. The company was founded and owned by former Busy Bee employees and initially employed 50 people. [4] [5] It was headquartered in Bergen, but later established a technical base in Stavanger. [6] The painting of the Norwegian aircraft is white with a red signal nose and a dark blue stripe, the same colors as the Norway flag.

The vertical stabilizer or Tailfin is painted with a red tip and a dark blue stripe underneath, which contains the airline`s website, the rest of the valley being either empty white or containing representations of people of historical importance from all over Europe and the Americas. [88] Norwegian`s partnership with UNICEF, Network Norway and the airline`s Norwegian Reward frequent flyer program are among the special paintings on Norwegian aircraft. Norwegian charges as a low-cost airline an additional fee for on-board food and beverages, checked baggage, credit card payment and other non-nuclear services. [90] After receiving federal assistance from the Norwegian government, Norwegian had also applied for a loan guarantee for a loan through the Swedish government, which the government considered to be for airlines with a Swedish operating licence and whose main operation or head office in Sweden was granted until early 2020. [45] The Swedish government had granted a total of 5 billion Swedish kronor in loan guarantees to potential airlines in order to be financially viable and indispensable to candidates for Swedish aviation infrastructure and found that it had provided SEK 1.5 billion to Scandinavian Airlines, headquartered in Sweden. [45] While Norwegian, through itself and its subsidiary Norwegian Air Sweden, had a Swedish air carrier certificate (and this aircraft registered in the Swedish register) and operations based in Sweden, the airline`s application for credit guarantee was rejected by the Swedish government in August 2020; the government stated that the airline was not financially viable before the pandemic as of December 31, 2019. [46] Also in August 2020, the company stated that it would have no money in the first quarter of 2021 without additional money.
