The two aircraft will enter its fleet in Q2 2017 and will be used to extend its long-haul network.

NAS confirmed on Thursday (August 27) that the aircraft will be leased through its asset company Arctic Aviation Assets.

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