Following the decision by the relevant aviation regulatory bodies to temporarily suspend operations of Boeing 737 MAX, Norwegian will not operate any flights with this aircraft type until further notice. Norwegian remains in close dialogue with the aviation authorities and Boeing, and follows their instructions and recommendations.

Norwegian has more than 110 Boeing 737–800 aircraft in its fleet, which are not affected by this temporary suspension.

Norwegian would like to apologise to customers who will be affected by temporary cancellations and delays, but the safety and security of its customers and colleagues will never be compromised, and once authorities advise ceasing operations Norwegian will of course comply.

Tomas Hesthammer, Norwegian’s acting Chief Operating Officer said: “In response to the temporary suspension of Being 737 MAX operations by multiple aviation authorities we have taken the decision to not operate flights using this aircraft type until advised otherwise by the relevant aviation authorities. We would like to apologise to customers for any inconvenience caused, however, safety will always remain our top priority.

UPDATE

Following the decision by the relevant aviation regulatory bodies to temporarily suspend operations of Boeing 737 MAX, Norwegian will not operate any flights with this aircraft type until further notice.

All aircraft that are currently airborne will continue to destination or return to home base. Norwegian is now working on re-allocating its fleet options with other aircraft types, re-bookings to other flights and combining flights to minimise the inconvenience caused for its passengers. Norwegian would like to apologise to customers who are affected, but the safety and security of its customers and colleagues will never be compromised. Affected passengers will be informed via SMS and web pages.
