Norse Atlantic primes for launch


SCANDINAVI­AN airline startup Norse Atlantic Airways is starting to take shape, with the first jet (pictured) receiving its finishing touches in Norway this week.

The inaugural aircraft has been named in honour of Raet National Park in Arendal, Norway, with the budget, long-haul airline attempting to fill the vacuum left by Norwegian Air, which stopped its entire long-haul network as part of a major overhaul revealed earlier in the year.

The airline expects that its 15 Dreamliner­s will be flying by the middle of 2022, servicing cities such as Oslo, London, Paris, New York, Fort Lauderdale and LA.
