The Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority has issued an air operator’s certificate (AOC) to Norse Atlantic Airways, a new low-cost airline set to start flights in spring 2022.
Set to operate frequent services between Europe and the United States it has a fleet of 15 Boeing 787 Dreamliners and will serve destinations including New York, Florida, Paris, London and Oslo,
Norse CEO and founder Bjørn Tore Larsen said
“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. I would also like to commend my colleagues at Norse for their outstanding efforts getting the important AOC in place,”
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.
Norse plans to start commercial operation in spring 2022 and the first flights will depart from Oslo to selected cities in the U.S.
