Following the government of Norway’s decision to withhold further support from the airline, and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA (“Norwegian”) has decided to initiate an examinership process in Ireland relating to its subsidiary Norwegian Air International Limited (NAI), its wholly-owned asset company Arctic Aviation Assets DAC (AAA) and some of AAA’s subsidiaries. Norwegian will continue to operate all flight routes (currently limited due to the Covid situation) during this process, and plans to return to the skies fully once the COVID-19 travel restrictions are lifted.
Customers with future travel on Norwegian are requested to re-confirm their flights and reservation status directly with the airline prior to departure.
Norwegian's Press Release:
Norwegian has chosen an Irish process since its aircraft assets are held in Ireland. Norwegian has taken this decision in the interest of its stakeholders.
The purpose of the process is to reduce debt, right-size the fleet and secure new capital. This reorganization process protects the assets of the Norwegian group while allowing the company to focus on the rightsizing of the group. The process is estimated to take up to five months.
Jacob Schram, Norwegian CEO, said: “Seeking protection to reorganize under Irish law is a decision that we have taken to secure the future of Norwegian for the benefit of our employees, customers and investors. Our aim is to find solutions with our stakeholders that will allow us to emerge as a financially stronger and secure airline.”
