Will Expand Cargo Service To Include International Markets
Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA, branded as "Norwegian," is expanding beyond its domestic cargo routes with the establishment of a new subsidiary. Norwegian has established a cargo company that will coordinate and utilize the capacity of the airline’s route network. In addition, the new company aims to attract more business partners.
Norwegian Cargo AS is a Norwegian-owned company that will administer the various international markets through a wide network of General Sales Agents (GSA) agreements. The market in the Nordic countries will be managed directly by the company, which also enables the possibility for more direct agreements.
“With Norwegian's continual growth and the launch of flights to the United States and Thailand, this is the right time to establish a separate entity within the company to maintain and develop the transportation of goods and to ensure optimal utilization of the available cargo capacity,” says Bjørn Erik Barman-Jenssen, Director Ground Operation & In-flight Services.
Today, Norwegian only transports cargo within Scandinavia. The establishment of Norwegian Cargo means that Norwegian’s entire route network with over 120 destinations will be available for customers who need to transport goods.
Norwegian is the second largest airline in Scandinavia, and has a route portfolio that stretches across Europe into North Africa and the Middle East. In May 2013 it plans to commence long-haul flights from Scandinavia to the US and Asia.
