Restructuring saw the company shed a large part of its fleet (156 to 51 aircraft) and a reduction of its debt. The number of employees has dropped to around 3,300.

Norwegian is out of the long-haul business and will concentrate on flights in Europe.

The restructuring plan has now been approved in both Ireland and Norway where the aircraft are registered.
