Matthew Wood is Norwegian Air’s SVP of Long-Haul Commercial,” As the airline moves from growth to profitability, we have conducted a comprehensive review of our transatlantic operations between Ireland and North America and considering the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, we have concluded that these routes are no longer commercially viable”.
Norwegian has been operating their flights to Europe with leased planes since the company’s 737 Boeing Max planes were grounded over safety concerns.SVP Wood says,” We are assisting customers by ensuring they can still get to their destination by rerouting them onto other Norwegian services. Customers will also be offered a full refund if they no longer wish to travel.”
