The company’s first long-haul flight will take place between Oslo and New York on May 30, 2013; the first flight between Oslo and Bangkok is on June 1, 2013.
“This is a major milestone in our company’s history and I am very pleased that it is now possible to book tickets to our flights to New York and Bangkok. We look forward to welcoming our passengers on board the brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the most modern and technologically advanced long-haul aircraft in production today,” said CEO Bjørn Kjos.
“Freedom of choice is an important part of Norwegian’s business philosophy – also on the intercontinental routes. As we know that travelers have a greater need for ‘that little extra’ on longer flights, we will give those who want the option to order a product which includes larger seats, more leg room, a three-course meal with drinks and checked baggage,” said Kjos.
With departures from Bangkok and New York from both Oslo and Stockholm, it is possible to fly Norwegian from Scandinavia to both cities six days a week.
Eight 787 Dreamliners on order so farNorwegian will take the delivery of its first 787 Dreamliner in April 2013. The second and third Dreamliner will enter the fleet in June and November respectively. Norwegian will take delivery of an additional four aircraft in 2014 and one in 2015.
