Norwegian has been awarded “Best European low-cost airline” by AirlineRatings.com. The jury praises Norwegian’s ability to offer its passengers an innovative quality product at a low fare.
”I am very pleased and happy about this recognition. This proves that passengers appreciate our brand new, more environmentally friendly and comfortable aircraft, free inflight WiFi and low fares. It also shows that everyone at Norwegian works very hard every day to ensure that our passengers have a great experience,” said CEO Bjørn Kjos at Norwegian.
”We have lauded Norwegian on its innovation of bringing affordable and safe travel to millions across Europe. Norwegian has brought a touch of class and non-stop innovation to the airline industry in Europe and now further afield which makes Norwegian an airline to watch,” said Geoffrey Thomas, Editor-in-Chief at AirlineRatings.com.
Norwegian was also voted best low-cost airline in Europe by SkyTrax World Airline Awards last summer.
There is no question that the Low Cost Airline market is the most competitive and also the most rapidly growing. Thus competition to be the best is a challenge of balancing product with low prices.
AirlineRatings.com winners are: jetBlue (The Americas), Jetstar Group (Asia/Pacific), flydubai (Middle-East/Africa) and Norwegian (Europe).
The four airlines are clear leaders in their respective markets with clever innovations and they consistently delivery an excellent value proposition. “These airlines may not always offer the lowest fare but what they almost always do is deliver by far the best value,” said Mr Thomas. And these airlines open new routes and bring travel to millions who could previously not afford to fly.
