Brand-new Norwegian airline Norse Atlantic Airways has been connecting Oslo with several North American destinations since June and the carrier now plans to ramp up its network with regular connections from Berlin to New York and Los Angeles.
Jettainer, which has a fleet of more than 1,000 containers and pallets for flight operations, has provided the airline with a customized and dedicated fleet of containers and pallets, as well as repair and maintenance of all units.
This full-service support has enabled the airline to start and now to expand operations on schedule despite the current shortage of ULDs. The long-term partnership will run for five years to safeguard the ULD needs of this growing airline.
The launch of Norse Atlantic Airways’ new routes from Berlin complements connections from Oslo to New York (JFK), Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Los Angeles, all operated by a modern fleet of 15 Boeing 787 Dreamliners. Paris (CDG) and London (LGW) will also serve as hubs in the future and further destinations are already in the pipeline.
“Norse Atlantic is offering affordable direct transatlantic flights, allowing everyone to explore new destinations,” said Bjørn Tore Larsen, Chief Executive Officer at Norse Atlantic Airways.
As we are committed to a modern and environmentally friendly fleet, we have also chosen the most cost-efficient and sustainable solution for our ULDs. As the market leader, Jettainer offers us the highest level of reliability, transparency and flexibility for our operations.”
