Norwegian's US-based cabin crew call for 'swift approval' of NAI application

19-Feb-2015 6:03 AM

Norwegian's US-based cabin crew delivered (18-Feb-2015) letters to the Obama administration, calling for the "swift approval" of Norwegian Air International's application for a foreign air carrier permit. Norwegian Fort Lauderdale base chief Joseph Gabriel said: "Norwegian has made a strong commitment to the US economy and given 300 American Flight Attendants jobs. Norwegian is a future-oriented airline that is not only creating jobs within the airline, but also within the entire tourism industry by bringing several hundred thousand tourists to the US every year. It’s about time that NAI is approved so that Norwegian can continue to offer the American traveller non-stop transatlantic destinations at lower and more competitive fares." [more - original PR]
