With the new air link, Norwegian will now offer non-stop service to nine Spanish destinations from Stockholm Arlanda: Bilbao, Barcelona, Madrid, Alicante, Malaga, Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Fuerteventura and Mallorca.

"Norwegian has made a significant contribution in enabling more destinations around the world to be reached now via direct service from Stockholm Arlanda. Their growth at our airports provides increased access to and from Sweden. We are also really pleased about the strong passenger growth this year, as we surpass the 26 million mark, and that we can begin the new year with yet another direct route from Stockholm Arlanda," says Elizabeth Axtelius, director of aviation business at Swedavia.

Norwegian phases in new aircraft on a continuous basis and has the youngest and most environmentally progressive aircraft fleet in the world. Today the fleet consists of 145 aircraft.
