Norwegian Airlines will not return their 18 737MAX aircraft to service after being grounded for almost 2 years. After going through restructuring, Norwegian will return to using their 737-800 aircraft that are what the airline was built on. The company claims that this is a cost saving measure as retraining all the pilots to fly the MAX again will be very expensive. Norwegian has commissioned Orix Aviation, an Irish company to sell the aircraft that the airline leased.
This means that after Norwegian restructures in the coming months, the fleet of 140, will be slimmed down to between 50 and 60.
I think this is an interesting move by Norwegian and im interested to hear your thoughts about it. I will link the article that I used down below but it is in Norwegian.
