New blog: A greener fleet – why low-cost travel can also mean lower emission flights

At Norwegian, our aim is to make aviation carbon neutral by 2050. Having one of the youngest, most environmentally friendly fleets in the world with an average age of just four years is key to this environmental approach.

We take pride in being a low-cost airline because we believe that everyone should be able to fly. But low-cost does not only mean affordable fares, it also means comfortable and environmentally friendly flights. That is why new, more environmentally friendly and comfortable aircraft are central to our plans.

Since 2008, our fleet renewal program has enabled us to reduce our CO2 emissions by 30 per cent and we are committed to being progressive and thinking long-term.

That is why we have more than 250 new aircraft on firm order and have recently announced a huge order for 19 new Dreamliner aircraft – not only will these new aircraft allow us to offer exciting new low-cost routes and the best possible passenger experience, they will also help us to continue our environmentally friendly approach.

Technological improvements beyond the actual aircraft also contribute to a greener aviation industry. New technology enables us to fly shorter distances between airports and allows new, smoother and safer approaches.

At Norwegian, not only are we constantly looking for ways to improve our passengers’ travel experience, we also take deep pride in being able to offer one of the most environmentally friendly fleets in the world – new aircraft are a crucial part of that and will continue to be at the heart of our plans.

Norwegian was founded in 1993 but began operating as a low-cost carrier with Boeing 737 aircraft in 2002. Since then, our mission has been to offer affordable fares for all and to allow customers to travel the smart way by offering value and choice throughout their journey.

Norwegian has been voted Europe’s Best Low-Cost airline by Skytrax for six consecutive years and won Airline Program of the Year Europe & Africa at the Freddie Awards for four consecutive years. Since 2012, Norwegian has won over 55 awards for our service, product, and innovation in the industry.

We were the first airline in the world to join the UN Climate Secretariat’s climate action-initiative in 2019, pledging to work systematically to become carbon neutral by 2050.

Norwegian operates a short haul network across the Nordics and to key European destinations providing customers with excellent quality at affordable fares.
