Norwegian Expansion Plans in South America

The world’s fastest growing low-cost airline gains approval to operate out of Argentina.

The Argentinian National Administration of Civil Aviation (ANAC) has recently approved 153 new services for Norwegian Air Argentina to operate, just three services short of what it had applied for. According to ANAC, Norwegian applied for 15-year concessions to operate out of Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Mendoza, Salta, and Rosaria. 

Norwegian Long Haul Pilot Jobs

Norwegian Air Argentina is a newly formed subsidiary of Norwegian and is part of its rapid expansion into new markets. 

Norwegian will serve major European cities out of Buenos Aires, including London, Madrid, Copenhagen, Paris, Olso, and Moscow, among others. To the US, it will serve San Francisco, Washington, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Dallas, and more.  

Norwegian is currently offering flights from LGW to EZE on its B787 Dreamliner for around £299 and expects to fly four times per week. This will be Norwegian’s 11th long haul destination and complements the approximately 5.2 million passengers Norwegian flies out of LGW every year. 

This expansion continues to garner great interest from the aviation community, and Rishworth Aviation looks forward to continuing to provide crew to Norwegian! 

Rishworth Aviation is proud to be the provider of Boeing 787 Dreamliner pilots for Norwegian.
