Norwegian is restarting short haul flights from the UK as it expands its wider European network.
Since April Norwegian has only operated eight aircraft on domestic routes in Norway. Now another 12 aircraft will re-join the fleet and be put into operation across Scandinavia.
New protective safety measures have been introduced to further reduce the risk of infection.
- Travellers that are six years and older must use a facemask.
- Passengers will be asked to keep their distance during boarding and deboarding.
- Hand luggage should be placed under the seat in front to minimise queuing in the cabin. Hand luggage that is too big to be placed under the seat in front needs to be checked in beforehand.
- Passengers will be seated with as much distance between them as possible. The mid row seats will be the last to be occupied. Passengers and families travelling together will be seated together.
- There is no catering on board to minimise the contact between customers and crew.
- Aircraft are thoroughly disinfected according to strict guidelines and have placed extra focus on contact points on board. This reduces the risk for both passengers and cabin crew.
- All aircraft are fitted with an advanced HEPA air filtration system that removes bacteria and viruses in the air.
