Norwegian expands longhaul fleet

Norwegian has signed an agreement to acquire an additional two new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, enabling the company to launch even more long-haul routes.

Both aircraft are scheduled to enter service in summer 2017.

The 787-9 is larger than the eight 787-8s that Norwegian currently operates on its long-haul routes.

With this new agreement, the long-haul fleet will consist of 19 Dreamliners by 2018.

Norwegian continues to expand its international operations by signing an agreement to lease two new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.


Both aircraft are scheduled to enter service in summer 2017.

Today, Norwegian has eight 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft in its long-haul fleet, as well as 11 787-9 Dreamliners on order.

The company will have 19 long-haul aircraft in its fleet by 2018, whereof four will be delivered in 2016, five in 2017 and two in 2018.

“In order to make our long-haul operation even more competitive, we are dependent on more brand new cost-efficient aircraft.

“Our long-haul routes have been very popular and I´m very satisfied to have secured more Dreamliners.

“This will enable us to launch even more routes to exiting destinations all over the world.

“This is a fantastic airplane with high passenger comfort, long range and low fuel burn,” said Norwegian chief executive Bjørn Kjos.
