Times haven’t been easy for Norwegian. The European low cost airline decided earlier (pre-covid) to stop several routes due to low demand, in particular some transatlantic routes. The current Corona crisis makes things even worse. Nevertheless, Norwegian now plans to offer flights from Paris to New York and Los Angeles.

Norwegian can mostly be found in Scandinavia these days – especially Norway and Sweden. Previously, the low cost carrier also offered long haul flights with its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft from a variety of European countries. Routes were cut in a bid to staunch losses.
