Norwegian Air Shuttle has
taken delivery of its first direct purchase, new Boeing 737-800
Norwegian Air Shuttle CEO, Bjorn Kjos, said the
delivery of the 737-800 marks an important milestone in the Oslo,
Norway-based, low cost airline’s history.
“Having already leased 13 Boeing

Norwegian Air Shuttle.”
Kjos said Norwegian Air Shuttle’s
737-800 features new more comfortable seats and increased legroom
for passenger comfort.
