Norwegian resumes flights to Finland on June 28
As of May 31, 2021, Norwegian has resumed flights from Sweden and plans to expand the operational network to more than 30 destinations this year. Norwegian is starting to rebuild its operational network after coming out of bankruptcy protection on May 26, 2021.
As travel restrictions begin to rise and the number of people vaccinated increases, people's interest in travel will increase. Norwegian will start operating flights to Oslo, Stockholm, Oulu, Malaga and Alicante directly from Helsinki Airport. Multiple destinations will be added depending on demand.
"We are very happy to resume flights from Finland and to receive Finnish customers on board our aircraft. We have noticed an increase in our customers' interest in flying again and we will gradually add more destinations from Finland. Norwegian offers good services at a reasonable price and flexible types of tickets to popular destinations in Europe ", says Norwegian CEO Jacob Schram.

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.
