The routes include those between Oslo, Copenhagen, and Stockholm and holiday destinations such as Malaga, Split, Dubrovnik, Palma de Mallorca, and Alicante.
“To everyone who wants to travel with Norwegian this summer, I have a happy message: We will be in the air with more planes, and we will reopen a number of the routes customers have requested,” Norwegian's chief executive Jacob Schram said in a press release.
He said that after SAS had announced the restart of string of new flights in June, Norwegian had to catch up.
“Now that the competitors are also starting again with large parts of their offerings, we must also enter the competition and thus contribute to society gradually returning to normal,” he said.
Putting another 12 aircraft into service will mean bringing 900 pilots and cabin crew back from temporary unemployment, of whom 600 are in Norway, he said.
“I am very happy that we are now getting many of our Red Nose Warriors back to work and back in the air to take care of our customers.”
The airline has produced a video explaining what measures are in place to reduce the spread of infection (in Norwegian).
