Norwegian’s UK Subsidiary Given Tentative Approval by US DOT for Transatlantic Operations

News   •   Jul 14, 2017 20:49 EDT

Norwegian welcomes news that its British subsidiary, Norwegian UK (NUK), was been given tentative approval by the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) for a foreign air carrier permit. The approval reaffirms that the NUK application is in full compliance with the EU–US Open Skies Agreement.

When finalized by the DOT, the permit will allow Norwegian’s UK subsidiary to operate low-cost flights between the U.S. and Europe.

Once final approval is received from the DOT, NUK will be able to establish a seamless operation and more effectively utilize its long-haul fleet – this includes the use of the same aircraft on all long-haul routes, such as the U.S., Singapore, Argentina and other future long-haul markets Norwegian is looking at in Asia and South America.

“Tentative U.S. approval for our UK subsidiary is a positive step toward being able to offer millions of passengers even more new routes and lower fares," said Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos. "We look forward to final DOT approval for Norwegian UK’s foreign air carrier permit soon, which will allow us to continue delivering more flights, more choice and more jobs on both sides of the Atlantic.”
