New upstart: Norse Atlantic Airways

Norse Atlantic Airways (Oslo) is a new proposed trans-Atlantic carrier based in Norway.

The new airline hopes to fill the long-haul void left by Norwegian Air Shuttle which has withdrawn from trans-Atlantic operations.

The company includes Bjoern Kjos (above), the founder and previous CEO of Norwegian, who will have a 15% share in Norse Atlantic, with the majority controlled by Bjoern Tore Larsen, co-founder of the staffing company OSM Aviation.

The proposed carrier plans to serve cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Miami, London, Paris and Oslo with ex-Norwegian Boeing 787 Dreamliners by the end of 2021.
