One of the world’s fastest growing airlines, low-cost carrier Norwegian Air has expanded from its Scandinavian roots to cover 150 destinations in Europe, the United States, the Caribbean, and beyond. Primarily known for its European presence, in the past few years Norwegian has been taking on major international carriers and legacy U.S. airlines by flying low-cost routes from seven mainland U.S. cities across the Atlantic, undercutting its rivals’ fares by between 20% to 50% in some cases. And, thanks to its highly fuel- and space-efficient fleet, Norwegian hit record profitability in 2016. In December 2016, the U.S. Department of Transportation approved the carrier's application to expand from an Ireland base into even more U.S. cities. First up: Stewart International, near New York City and Providence, Rhode Island.
