The Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority today (December 30, 2021) issued an air operator’s certificate (AOC) to Norse Atlantic Airways. The new airline is on track to start transatlantic flights in spring 2022.
An AOC is the approval granted by a national aviation authority to an aircraft operator to allow it to use aircraft for commercial purposes. This requires the operator to have personnel, assets and systems in place to ensure the safety of its employees and the general public.
Norse plans to start commercial operation in spring 2022 and the first flights will depart from Oslo to selected cities in the U.S.
Norse will be offering direct flights from Oslo to: • Los Angeles (Ontario Intl. Airport) • New York (Stewart Intl. Airport) • Fort Lauderdale/Miami (Ft. Lauderdale Intl. Airport) .
