NORWEGIAN AIR Shuttle’s British subsidiary is expected to launch operations during the first quarter of this year after securing its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) from the Civil Aviation Authority. The London Gatwick-based low-cost carrier – Norwegian UK – intends to tap into the country’s existing and future bilateral agreements and is particularly keen to expand its long-haul services to Asia, South American and South Africa.

“The British market continues to play a major role in our growth,” Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos remarked. “Securing a UK operating license is great news and an important step to get a stronger foothold in the UK as we plan for further expansion, new routes and new jobs.”

The British offshoot is one of four Norwegian Air Shuttle subsidiaries which also includes Oslo-based Norwegian Air International, Norwegian Air Norway and Irish affiliate Norwegian Long Haul. The Gatwick-based carrier took delivery of the first aircraft on its AOC – Boeing 737-8JP, G-NRWY (c/n39024) – on November 12.
