Established in 1993, Norwegian Air Shuttle was formed to take over the operations of Busy Bee, who had been offering flights from Norway since 1966. Norwegian Air Shuttle flew 50 daily routes in 1995.
In 2002 the company was re-branded as Norwegian, offering domestic flights as a low-cost carrier.
In 2012 Norwegian increased the fleet of aircraft and moved the operations base to London Gatwick. The following year the airline announced new destinations to Spain, Portugal, Italy and Croatia, in direct competition with EasyJet and RyanAir.
Norwegian is the third largest budget carrier in Europe and ranks ninth in the world, with a passenger total of over 30 million in 2016.
The distinctive livery, featuring the red nose on the aircraft and portraits of famous Scandinavians on the tail, makes Norwegian easily recognisable.
Note: The departures and arrivals schedules listed below were subject to changes during the “State of Alarm” in Spain (March to June 2020), and may not all yet be back to normal – or still be temporarily under review.
