Not yet announced officially, but very likely a hub is going to be launched in Amsterdam (AMS), likely with long-haul flights!


They're looking for pilots for 787's.
Relieving the pressure on Dutch housing market: we need more apartments and taller apartment buildings, no single-family dwellings anymore!

Prohibit the construction of new single-family dwellings without stacking apartments in Amsterdam (A10), Rotterdam (motorway ring), The Hague, Utrecht (outer ring), Eindhoven (ring), Tilburg (ringbanen) and Groningen (provincial ring)!

And prohibit the use of agricultural land for new dwellings!

It's sad that Norwegian doesn't expand their long-haul operation in Scandinavia anymore.

Norwegian to expand with new airline in Argentina

Norwegian is set to launch a subsidiary airline in Argentina.

The group established Norwegian Air Argentina in January 2017, with plans to operate both domestic and international flights from a Buenos Aires base pending government approval.

Norwegian’s CEO Bjorn Kjos has said that the airline would fly to Argentina from its Gatwick hub, linking the South American country with European cities such as Paris, Barcelona, Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm.

CEO of Norwegian Air Argentina, Ole Christian Melhus, said: “Argentina is an interesting market with great potential that fits Norwegian’s global strategy very well, combining affordable domestic and international flights.

“We have been very well received by Argentinian authorities and look forward to a fruitful relationship going forward.”

Norwegian has applied for an Argentinian Air Operator’s Certificate. If granted, the airline will announce and begin selling routes routes from Argentina by the end of this year.

British Airways is the only current carrier to fly direct to Argentina with a service between Heathrow and Buenos Aires.


They have orders for 10 B737-800

Finnair continues on growth path next year in Asia and Europe. The airline also recently posted its tenth consecutive quarterly improvement and all-time high profit for Q2.

Finnair expands its growing network in China with new year-round route to Nanjing

Further strengthening its solid presence in China, Finnair today announced the opening of a new year-round route between Helsinki and Nanjing, China. Located along Yangtse River, Nanjing is one of the four ancient capitals of China, and a vibrant center for culture and economy. With a population of over 8 million people, Nanjing is an important commercial hub and leisure destination with growing passenger and cargo demand.

Offering convenient transfers to Finnair’s network of over 100 destinations, the new route between Helsinki and Nanjing will be operated three times per week during the summer season and two times per week during the winter season.

The opening of the Nanjing route will increase Finnair’s growing footprint in Northeast Asia, with the Finnish carrier flying to seven destinations in Greater China during the 2018 summer season. Altogether, Finnair will fly 38 weekly flights to Greater China, flying daily flights to both Beijing and Shanghai, 4 weekly flights to both Chongqing and Guangzhou, three weekly flights to both Nanjing and Xi’an as well as 10 weekly flights to Hong Kong.
The inaugural flight to Nanjing will take place on May 13, 2018 and the new route will be operated with an Airbus A330 aircraft. --
