Norwegian abandons hope to fly Boeing 737 MAX this year


Norwegian Air Airline does not expect to operate any flights at all this year with the infamous Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, which are on the ground for safety reasons. That said interim chief executive Geir Kalrsen. Earlier, Norwegian assumed that they could use the aircraft again from October.

The Boeing 737 MAX has been banned from flying worldwide for months. That happened after a crash of an aircraft from Ethiopian Airlines as a result of an over-reacting safety system. A few months earlier, a 737 MAX from the Indonesian airline Lion Air had also crashed due to that system.

Keeping the relatively fuel-efficient 737 MAX aircraft on the ground saddles companies worldwide with the necessary costs. Norwegian says it is still talking to Boeing about compensation for the damage suffered.
