Norwegian boosts premium class capacity on long-haul routes

Budget airline Norwegian is raising premium class capacity on long-haul routes

The expanded premium cabin on new Boeing 787 Dreamliners will have 60% more seats. The new cabin will be fitted on 20 Dreamliners set for delivery from February. Twelve new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft will join the fleet this year to serve the carrier’s transatlantic routes from Edinburgh, Belfast and Ireland to the US east coast. Norwegian will begin to expand in-flight wi-fi on long-haul routes at an unspecified date later in the year. Chief commercial officer Thomas Ramdahl said: “This year will see us fly to new heights as the UK will continue to be centre stage for our international growth. We want to fly people further for the best possible value which is why we’re investing for the future in low-cost long-haul travel.”
