Boeing aircraft on Norwegian’s future long-haul routes

November 11th, 2010

Some months ago we reported about the ambitions on the part of Norwegian Air Shuttle to enter the long-haul market. This Norwegian carrier has reached the next stage of the process – namely the choice of aircraft.

It has been announced that Norwegian decided to lease 2 new Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners for the period of 12 years starting from 2012. The decision was taken for a number of reasons, such as lower fuel consumption and a high standard of passenger comfort.

Incidentally, we wonder if the choice was affected by the fact that Airbus aircraft suffer somewhat tarnished reputation these days following the technical problems which make headlines (e.g. the engine explosion on an Airbus SAS A380 belonging to Qantas Airways).

Regardless of the motivation for this decision, affordable flights connecting e.g. Airport Oslo with the USA are one step closer to reality.
