Norwegian: We Have Sent The Bill To Boeing



Russian satellite network reported that earlier this week, a Norwegian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX aircraft flying to Tel Aviv was forced to stop the route and return to Stockholm. The reason was that the company decided to ground all Boeing 737 MAX aircraft after the Ethiopian crash.

“I would like to apologize to those customers who have been affected by the temporary grounding of our 737 MAX aircraft. Our customers are our main priority now,” says Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos. #flynorwegian

Norwegian airlines spokesman Lasse Sandaker-Nielsen said on March 13: “We will send all the bills generated to Boeing.”

While Norwegian airlines is under strong financial pressure; the relevant grounding decision has a negative impact on the profitability of many airlines.

Boeing said in a commentary on the plane crash that the company was “completely confident” about the aircraft, but the aircraft manufacturer’s share price has fallen by 6.1%, causing Boeing stocks to lose $26.65 billion in market value.

B737 MAX 8 Fleet

I am impressed by Norwegian’s strong stance when the B737 MAX 8 issues comes on top of their own financial hardships, for a LCC in Europe, they have been proven to be brave and adapt to adversity just like other legacy carriers.

SAS Launches Transfer Testing Solutions At Copenhagen Airport



SAS A350 Livery Rear View

The Chinese government recently issued new regulations that all passengers on flights to China need to undergo nucleic acid and serum IgM antibody tests in advance. The testing equipment at Copenhagen Airport will be put into use from November 16. Transit passengers need to set aside 4 hours for testing and obtain testing reports. This time is expected to be shortened to 1 hour after 2-3 weeks. Passengers who have undergone pre-boarding double-checks on flights to China at Copenhagen Airport can board directly with the negative test report. Scandinavian Airlines will continue to provide passengers with the latest news about the Copenhagen Airport testing facilities.

More flexible rebooking and cancellation for flights connecting to China

According to the new regulations, transit passengers need to undergo nucleic acid testing and serum IgM antibody testing in countries that fly directly to China, which may require extending their stay in Copenhagen, and thus need to rebook or cancel the original flight to Copenhagen. In order to facilitate passengers to accept the test on time, SAS is allowing passengers to rebook or cancel the flight to Copenhagen for free. The resulting change fee, refund fee and possible fare difference will be all exempted, that is to say, all are free. Normally, European inland segments are not allowed to be changed or cancelled individually. Please note that SAS is not responsible for other expenses incurred due to rescheduling, such as accommodation. There is no refund for cancelled connecting flights.

Extra Check-in Baggage For Students Fly From China

Scandinavian Airlines are now launching very attractive one-way tickets from China.

This means that students travelling in economy class (except for Go Light) can carry two pieces of checked luggage, each of which must not exceed 23 kg. The free extra baggage check will be done manually at the airport check-in counter.
