Norwegian launches cargo operation

Norwegian launches cargo operation

Low-cost carrier Norwegian has established a cargo company which will coordinate and utilise the capacity of the airline’s route network.

In addition, the new company aims to attract more business partners.

Norwegian Cargo AS is a Norwegian-owned company that will administer the various international markets through a wide network of General Sales Agents agreements.

The market in the Nordic countries will be managed directly by the company, which also enables the possibility for more direct agreements.

“With Norwegian’s continual growth and the launch of flights to the United States and Thailand, this is the right time to establish a separate entity within the company to maintain and develop the transportation of goods and to ensure optimal utilisation of the available cargo capacity,” said Bjørn Erik Barman-Jenssen, director ground operation & in-flight services.

Today, Norwegian only transports cargo within Scandinavia.

The establishment of Norwegian Cargo means that Norwegian’s entire route network with over 120 destinations will be available for customers who need to transport goods.
