​Norwegian named Europe’s Best Low Cost Airline for fourth consecutive year at industry awards

Norwegian was today awarded the title of ‘Best Low Cost Airline – Europe’ for a fourth consecutive year by leading industry website www.airlineratings.com.

Airlineratings.com attracts over 14 million visitors from 232 countries, with the website announcing its Airline Excellence Awards each year to celebrate and promote excellence in the airline industry.

In selecting Norwegian as Europe’s Best Low Cost Airline for a fourth consecutive year, the website’s editorial team praised Norwegian for its innovation of bringing affordable and safe travel to millions of passengers across Europe and beyond.

Norwegian CEO Bjorn Kjos said: “We are pleased to receive this industry recognition which shows that throughout Norwegian’s rapid expansion, we are continuing to offer passengers high-quality services and affordable fares.”

AirlineRatings.com Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas said: “Norwegian has re-written the low cost book and delivers outstanding value to its passengers. You know your airline is a winner when other airlines try and block your innovation and low fares.”
