  • Bjorn Kjos: Steering Norwegian towards growth in Scandinavia and beyond

    News | 25 Sep 2007 08:35 | Kerry Reals

    <P><STRONG>Bjorn Kjos, chief executive of Oslo-based low-cost carrier Norwegian, is the first to admit that his work schedule is about to get much busier following the acquisition of Swedish budget carrier FlyNordic and a recent firm order for 42 Boeing 737-800s.</STRONG></P> <P>But Kjos is ready for the challenge as he focuses on strengthening the networks of both Norwegian and FlyNordic, as well as turning around the latter’s fortunes and making it profitable.</P> <P>Norwegian recently signed a firm order with Boeing for 42 737-800s plus 42 purchase rights, building on a previous lease agreement for 11 of the same model. Kjos says the new aircraft will be used to replace Norwegian’s 22-strong fleet of Boeing 737-300s, as well as FlyNordic’s Boeing MD-80 fleet. The leased aircraft will be delivered between 2008 and 2010, while the purchased aircraft are scheduled for delivery between 2009 and 2014.</P> <P><IMG style="PADDING-RIGHT: 10px; FLOAT: left; PADDING-BOTTOM: 10px; OVERFLOW: ahttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Bjorn-Kjos-Steering-Norwegian-towards-growth-in-Scandinavia-and-beyond-216774/
