Norwegian Addresses Ongoing Objections to NAI’s U.S. Operations

The Norwegian Group isn’t complacent, or taking anything for granted, after progress with USDOT towards granting Open Skies access to the U.S. for Norwegian Air International, Ireland.

The decision by the USDOT has not been popular with the lobbying groups which have fought against recognising NAI as anything more than “a flag of convenience,” and Norwegian is tackling this resistance by disputing claims on poor labor terms and negative impact to U.S. airlines and the U.S. market.

Norwegian Air International Gets USDOT Pre-Approval, What Now?

On Friday, 15 April, the U.S. Department of transportation issued a proposed order granting Norwegian’s subsidiary, Norwegian Air International, permit to fly to the U.S..

While the permit still needs to be finalised, it would finally give Norwegian’s Ireland based division access to U.S. cities.

Norwegian has announced it would launch the first-ever service between Cork and Boston.
