Norwegian’s CEO, Bjørn Kjos, shared a statement regarding the carrier’s upcoming year. “2017 has been a year of exponential growth for Norwegian in Europe and the United States. Next year, we will continue our long-haul expansion by offering passengers easy and affordable connections between the US and some of Europe’s most exciting cities,” he said.

During the first quarter of 2018, the carrier will inaugurate its fourth American crew base with 150 cabin crewmembers to support the continuous development at LAX.
