Norwegian once again recognised as ‘World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline’ and ‘Best Low-Cost Airline in Europe’

Norwegian was today named ‘World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline’ for the fourth consecutive year and ‘Best Low-Cost Airline in Europe’ for the sixth year in a row at the prestigious Skytrax World Airline Awards held in London.

The Skytrax 2018 World Airline Awards are independent and impartial and represent the leading international airline rating system as voted for by the travelling public. Norwegian was once again recognised as setting the standard in low cost travel by providing outstanding service combined with a high-quality product while operating one of the youngest fleets in the aviation industry.

Throughout 2017 and into 2018 Norwegian has continued its global expansion plans and now serves more than 150 destinations in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Caribbean, South America and the US. 2018 marked a milestone year for the airline as Norwegian proudly launched its first route to South America with a direct service from London to Buenos Aires and its first route between London and Singapore. Transatlantic services were also increased with new flights from London to Chicago and Austin.

These latest awards add to the growing accolades that Norwegian has already received in 2018 including Best Wi-Fi in Europe and Best Overall Passenger Experience Low Cost Carrier Europe at the Passenger Choice Awards; Airline Programme of the Year Europe and Africa at the Freddie Awards in recognition of the airline’s customer loyalty programme – Norwegian reward; and Europe’s Leading Low-Cost Airline 2018 at the World Travel Awards.

Norwegian’s Chief Communications Officer, Anne-Sissel Skånvik, accepted the awards accompanied by Norwegian cabin crew Agne Zupkaite, Francesco Sapuppo, Marcin Krzywicki, Nancy Lily Wheeler at The Langham Hotel in central London.
