In the process of restructuring, the company sold a large part of its fleet. Thus, the Norwegian fleet was reduced from 156 aircraft to only 51 aircraft. At the same time, the number of employees was reduced to approximately 3.300, which also means a reduction in debts. Norwegian gave up long-haul flights and will operate only regional, short and medium flights in Europe.
