Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority clears Norse Atlantic Airways to start transatlantic flights.



The Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority has issued an air operator’s certificate (AOC) this week to Arendal, Norway, based budget carrier Norse Atlantic Airways. Clearing the start-up airline to commence transatlantic flights in spring 2022.  

“We would like to thank Norway’s Civil Aviation Authority for a constructive and professional process. We are now one important step closer to launching our attractive and affordable flights between Europe and the U.S. in spring next year,” said CEO and founder Bjørn Tore Larsen of Norse.  

“We’ve had a good and constructive dialogue with Norse throughout the process of issuing a Norwegian AOC. We wish them the best of luck and look forward to a continued fruitful relationship going forward,” said Director-General of the Civil Aviation Authorities of Norway, Lars E. de Lange Kobberstad. 

An AOC is the approval granted by a national aviation authority to an aircraft operator to allow it to use aircraft for commercial purposes. This requires the operator to have personnel, assets and systems in place to ensure the safety of its employees and the general public. 

“I would also like to commend my colleagues at Norse for their outstanding efforts getting the important AOC in place,” Bjørn Tore Larsen added. 

Norse plans to start commercial operation in spring 2022 and the first flights will depart from Oslo to selected cities in the U.S.  The firm plans to serve the intercontinental market with modern, fuel-efficient, environmentally friendly Boeing 787 Dreamliners. Among other destinations, it will serve New York, Florida, Paris, London and Oslo. If all goes well with the start-up phase, the airline expects that its fleet of 15 Boeing 787 Dreamliners will be in the air plying the highly competitive transatlantic market by summer 2022.

Norse Atlantic Airways will create many new jobs in the air and on the ground both in Europe and the U.S. The company’s employees will be directly employed by the airline, unlike its forerunner Norwegian, the firm says it will offer competitive wages and benefits as well as collective agreements. Norse Atlantic has signed pre-hire agreements with the Association of Flight Attendants, the largest cabin union in the U.S., and the British Airline Pilots Association. The company is also in dialogue with pilot and cabin unions in other countries, including Norway. In total, the firm expects to have approximately 1,600 employees by summer 2022, based in the U.S., UK, and Norway. 

Bjørn Tore Larsen commented:  "Since our launch in March, there has been tremendous interest in Norse from the travelling public, people who want to be a part of the team, airports, tourism organizations, media, politicians, and authorities – on both sides of the Atlantic. We are grateful for that interest, which translates to a very motivated Team Norse”. “Surveys show that what people have missed the most during one and a half years of lock-down is travel and new experiences. We believe that a new era is coming as the global vaccine program is completed. People will once again go on vacation, visit friends and family, and travel for business. Norse Atlantic Airways will be there to offer attractive and affordable flights to the leisure traveller and the cost-conscious business traveller”.

Many of the airlines key management previously worked for Norwegian Air Shuttle and bring a wealth of experience with them. Including Lasse Sandaker-Nielsen, Chief Communications and Public Affairs Officer, Maria Borg, VP, Government and Regulatory Affairs, Damion Burton Cabin and Security Lead Instructor, Dean Kitchen, Lead pilot instructor, Derek Spicer, Vice President Flight Training, Stian Hajem Skaar, Vice President Flight Operations, Tomas Hesthammer, Senior Vice President, Ahmad Abu-Nima, Vice President Technical Operations, Andrew Hodges, Chief Commercial Officer, James Collins, Vice President Ground Operations, David Thomas, Accountable Manager, Greg Warner, Line Check Pilot, Kane Hurley, Head of Product Development, Inflight and Ancillary, Harriet Rafter, VP Compliance Monitoring UK and Mark Visser, Senior Network Manager among others. 



Good luck Norse Atlantic Airways....

UK Pilot unions welcomes Norse Atlantic Airways plans

The British Airline Pilots Association and Norse Atlantic Airways announce partnership to bring hundreds of jobs to the UK



The British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA) and Norse Atlantic Airways (Norse), the new intercontinental airline, have entered into a new agreement that will deliver hundreds of jobs in the UK.
 
The new airline plans to commence affordable flights between Europe and North America in 2022, with a fleet of more environmentally friendly Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
 
BALPA’s National Officer Terry Brandon, said:  “This is a glimmer of hope for the struggling UK aviation industry that is much needed. We are pleased to welcome Norse Atlantic to London and the new jobs they will deliver at this critical time.
 
“Our negotiating team has been incredibly impressed with the company’s business plan as it will provide sustainable long-term careers for our members on its transatlantic route network. This collective agreement will facilitate a fruitful relationship between BALPA and Norse to ensure that Norse is a great place to work.

“It is a refreshing change to have an employer knocking on our door asking for an agreement, rather than us chasing the employer. Norse has proven to be a different breed; they have recognition of unions in their DNA. Consultations and dialogue are just natural, and we can really be a contributor to the business when the employer brings us in like Norse has done”.
 
“With some government restrictions now being lifted, we hope the newest member of the BALPA family flourishes, and our new agreement with Norse provides opportunities for hundreds of our members.”
 
Norse Atlantic´s CEO Bjorn Tore Larsen (pictured left)  said:  “We are thrilled to be collaborating with BALPA to offer pilots the opportunity to return to the cockpit and create hundreds of new jobs in the UK, especially following a tough time for the entire aviation industry.
 
“The passion and professionalism demonstrated by the BALPA team are exactly what we are looking for in Norse as we build a team Norse culture throughout the entire airline which will be our lasting competitive advantage.”

AerCap to provide new Norwegian airline Norse Atlantic Airways with 9 former Norwegian Boeing 787 aircraft


Leasing firm AerCap Holdings confirmed today what had been rumoured for a week or so, which was that it will be leasing six used Boeing 787-9 and three used Boeing 787-8 aircraft to the new Norwegian start-up airline Norse Atlantic Airways.

Peter Anderson, Chief Commercial Officer of AerCap, said, "AerCap is excited to announce the signing of lease agreements for nine Boeing 787 aircraft with Norse Atlantic Airways.  With its superior operating characteristics, the 787 is the perfect aircraft for Norse Atlantic Airways to launch a modern long-haul low-cost airline, and we are delighted to be supplying them with their first aircraft.  We wish Norse Atlantic Airways every success and look forward to working with them as they roll out their plan in the years to come." 

"We are thrilled to be partnering with a market leader in AerCap to lease our initial fleet of Dreamliners. Norse Atlantic Airways looks forward to providing our passengers with comfortable, affordable, intercontinental travel aboard these state-of-the-art aircraft," said Bjørn Tore Larsen, Chief Executive Officer of Norse Atlantic.

Norse Atlantic Airways, based in Oslo, Norway, plan to launch long-haul low-cost services, connecting major cities in Europe and the USA with these aircraft scheduled for delivery during 2021.  The Leases are at attractive rates and payment terms, allowing the Norse Atlantic team to offer a flexible implementation during the start-up phase. The lease terms are approximately 8 years for the 787-8 aircraft and approximately 12 years for the 787-9 aircraft. The launch date for Norse Atlantic is expected to be sometime during December 2021, in time for a Christmas rush, but at an otherwise relatively quiet time from transatlantic travel 

These aircraft previously flew with the budget carrier Norwegian, before it axed its entire long-haul operation to save itself from complete collapse. Yet, these aircraft are not the only connection to Norwegian, Norse Atlantic Airways has.  Three of the founders - Bjørn Tore Larsen, Bjorn Kljos and Bjørn Kise all held top jobs with Norwegian or OSM Aviation. A number of other key personnel are former Norwegian employees and the whole focus on being low-fare and low-cost, with lean management and administration teams, to operate long-haul flights, with high cabin utilization is pretty much how the former carrier started.
