Norwegian has once again been voted “Europe's best low-cost airline” - this time by AirlineRatings.com. The jury praises Norwegian’s ability to offer its passengers an innovative quality product and new routes at low fares. This is the second year running that Norwegian is awarded this international title by AirlineRatings.com.

AirlineRatings.com recently announced the winners of its "Airline Excellence Awards". For the second year running, Norwegian is named “Europe's best low-cost airline” by the jury. Winners from the other continents are: JetBlue (The Americas), Scoot (Asia / Pacific) and Kulula (Middle East / Africa). Norwegian is the only Nordic airline to receive a title. Last summer, Norwegian was also voted “Europe's best low-cost airline” by the renowned Skytrax World Airline Awards for the second year running.

“The four airlines are standouts in their respective markets with very clever innovations and they consistently delivery an excellent value proposition. These airlines may not always offer the lowest fare but what they always do is deliver the best value. And these airlines open new routes and make travel fun for millions who could previously not afford to fly,” said AirlineRatings.com Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas.

“This recognition means a lot and yet again confirms that customers appreciate Norwegian. We have new aircraft, free WiFi, low fares and many direct flights, but most importantly; we have skilled employees who every day ensure that our passengers enjoy their experience on board. Norwegian has won numerous international awards where the customers themselves have voted for us to become the best low-cost carrier. We will do our utmost and continue to work hard so that everyone has a good journey with us,” says Norwegian's CEO Bjørn Kjos.
