Airline Norwegian (NAS) has announced it will open a new base at Sandefjord Torp Airport, south of Oslo, Norway. The carrier will also launch eight new routes from the airport, in addition to the two it already operates there.
CEO Bjørn Kjos, said: “Norwegian sees a considerable potential both in the business and leisure segments in the greater Torp area, with its approximate population of 650,000. That’s why we will base one aircraft at Torp from March 2012 and launch eight new routes.”
A Boeing 737-800 aircraft will be based at Torp from next year. The new routes are Bergen, Trondheim, Evenes, Berlin, Palma, Las Palmas, Antalya and Nice. Norwegian currently operates flights to Alicante and Malaga from Torp.
The airline stated that 80% of its entire fleet will be WiFi-equipped as the new routes come into effect.
