Norwegian has established a new cargo subsidiary as part of a strategy to expand into international markets.

Currently, the airline's cargo business is confined to Scandinavia.

The new entity, Norwegian Cargo, will administer capacity on international routes via a wide network of general sales agent agreements. It will also directly manage the Nordic market. In total, Norwegian customers will be able to transport goods to more than 120 destinations.

The parent carrier cites "continual growth and the launch of flights to the United States and Thailand" as factors in the decision to set up Norwegian Cargo.
