Norwegian has confirmed plans to reopen base at Stockholm Arlanda, offering flights to 54 nonstop routes.
The restructured LCC is hiring around 270 cabin crew members, who will be stationed at the Swedish airport from April. Norwegian has been opening bases at multiple destinations recently.
The LCC opened bases in Helsinki, Copenhagen, Bergen, Stavanger and Trondheim in the last six months. In a statement, Norwegian CEO Geir Karlsen expressed his happiness, saying:
“We are very happy to now be back at Arlanda and can open our base for cabin crew. Despite the increasing spread of infection in recent months, we are positive about the coming summer season. We have therefore built up our route network from Arlanda with 54 direct destinations ahead of the season.
“Arlanda is one of our most important airports, and with 270 new faces at Arlanda, it is with pleasure that we can state that Norwegian is now seriously back in Sweden again.”
