Norwegian expands German operations as it grows in Europe

Norwegian Air Shuttle has outlined plans to continue its European expansion, with the launch of new routes from Hamburg, Cologne and Munich to several Spanish destinations revealed for this autumn.

“The expansion in the German market is part of our future strategy to expand our presence outside of the Nordic region in order to meet the strong competition in the airline industry,” explained Norwegian chief executive, Bjørn Kjos.

“We see that Germans frequently choose Norwegian when flying to Scandinavia and we believe that there is a demand for a quality airline that offers inexpensive fares between Germany and Spain.

“We are looking forward to welcoming passengers on board our modern and more eco-friendly aircraft.”

From the end of October, Norwegian launches brand new routes between Germany and Spain and will fly to Malaga, Alicante, Gran Canaria and Tenerife from Hamburg and Cologne.

From Munich, Norwegian will offer flights to Malaga, Alicante and Tenerife.

Norwegian is Europe’s third largest low-fare airline.

As one of the fastest growing airlines in Europe, it is establishing itself outside of the Nordic region by opening bases in the UK and Spain.

At the end of the month, Norwegian will, as the first European low-fare airline, commence long-haul flights to the US and Asia.
