Norwegian Start-Up airline Norse Atlantic Airways has given an update on planned launch of operations. According to the airline, operations are scheduled to begin at the end of the first or in the second quarter of next year.

The carrier launched in March of this year and has since then attracted interest from the travelling public like airports, tourism organizations, politicians, and media. CEO Bjørn Tore Larsen said that he is grateful for the interest, which would translate to a “very motivated” team.

Regarding the launch of operations, Larsen said: “We strongly believe that there is a need for a new and innovative airline serving the low-cost intercontinental market with modern, more environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient aircraft as the world gradually reopens. Our plans are on track and operations will commence when travel restrictions are lifted and demand for transatlantic travel is back.”

Norse Atlantic Airways will be using Boeing 787 Dreamliner on routes between Europe and the United States. The airline is set to launch tickets sales in approximately three months prior to the first flight. Norse will be using a low-cost model, where the base price for the flight is lower in comparison, but extras are costing extra.

Currently, the management team of Norse and all nominated postholders are working to receive a Norwegian Air Operators Certificate (AOC), for which the airline has already applied. Furthermore, the team is currently applying for a British AOC.

About the structure of personnel, Norse wrote in a statement: “All employees will be permanently employed by the airline. The company emphasizes a fruitful employer-employee relationship and has entered into an agreement with the largest U.S. flight attendants’ union, AFA. In addition, the company is in dialogue with unions in other countries.“

By Summer 2022, the airline plans to have approximately 1600 employees, when the airline will be taking off for launch flights with its livery, which also was announced by the airline.
