Norwegian has announced new routes from Hamburg, Cologne and Munich to several Spanish destinations this autumn.
"The expansion in the German market is part of our future strategy to expand our presence outside of the Nordic region in order to meet strong competition in the airline industry,” explained CEO of Norwegian Bjørn Kjos. “We see that Germans frequently choose Norwegian when flying to Scandinavia and we believe that there is a demand for a quality airline that offers inexpensive fares between Germany and Spain. We are looking forward to welcoming passengers on board our modern and more eco-friendly aircraft."
