History of Norwegian Air
Norwegian Air Shuttle was established in January of 1993 as an airline to service the western side of Norway. The first base was in Bergen but it was later moved to Stavanger. In 1994 the route Bergen to Vigra was opened. In 1995 the airline received its fourth aeroplane, allowing it to operate 50 daily flights. In 2000 Norwegian Air Shuttle bought a helicopter service, Lufttransport. In 2002 Norwegian Air announced it would operate low cost flights to some of its most popular routes, making it cheaper than ever to travel within Norway. Now Norwegian Air opened a second hub in Warsaw, Poland. It also completely owns the Swedish airline, FlyNordic.
In 2008 Norwegian Air began operating flights from Moss Airport in Rygge, a city located just south of Oslo. Destinations from this airport include Barcelona, Athens, Budapest, Valencia and Warsaw, among others. A hub was opened in Copenhagen after Sterling Airlines declared bankruptcy. Today Norwegian Air has ordered 42 new Boeing 737s to be delivered over the next five years.
