Norwegian will enter the US leisure market after signing its first charter contracts. The deals, with Apple Vacations and Funjet Vacations, are valued at a combined £10m and will see the Oslo-based carrier base three Boeing 737-800s in Milwaukee and Chicago between December and April. The jets are expected to operate more than 600 services to leisure destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean.
Commenting on the agreements, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer Thomas Ramdahl said: “We are very excited to expand our charter operations to the United States and partner with Apple Vacations and Funjet Vacations. We look forward to having more Americans enjoy the Norwegian experience on their way to what will hopefully be a fantastic holiday.”
