The Low-cost carrier Norwegian Air Shuttle is expanding and launches several new flights from Spain next year. Among the new flights are direct flights from Birmingham to Madrid, Barcelona and Málaga, in addition to a number of new flights between Spain and other countries. Moreover, the amount of departures on 13 existing routes is increasing.
Norwegian is most known for having free internet onboard all their flights and that you actually can change your ticket after you have booked, unlike Ryanair. They started up in Scandinavia as a competitor to SAS, but are now establishing flights all over Europe. You will often see that Norwegian is cheaper than Ryanair if you are travelling with checked in luggage, while Ryanair often is the cheapest choice if you are travelling with hand luggage only.
“Norwegian’s low prices, new aircrafts and pleasant service has been well received in new markets outside the Scandinavia, and we are pleased to offer our customers many new destinations to choose from”, says commercial director in Norwegian, Thomas Ramdahl.
