HistoryThe airline was founded on January 22 1993, taking over the regional airline services in Western Norway previously done by the Busy Bee for Braathens. Although it started as a subsidiary, it started operating on a contract directly with Braathens after Busy Bee’s bankruptcy. It started operating from Bergen Airport to various destinations such as Flesland and Kvernberget. In 1994, the airline began a service from Bergen to Alesund Airport, and flew 50 flights every day. However, the contract between Norwegian Air Shuttle (NAS) was terminated in 2002, when Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) purchased Braathens. Since then, NAS started operating as a budget carrier serving domestic routes under the brand name Norwegian. On 24 April 2007, NAS announced that it bought the Swedish low-cost airline FlyNordic from Finnair PLC, making it the biggest low-cost airline in Scandinavia. As a payment, Finnair received 5% share stake in the airline. In 2010, the airline started operating from Oslo-Gardermoen and Stockholm to Helsinki-Vantaa airport. It introduced more domestic routes to destinations in Scandinavia such as Oulu Airport and Rovaniemi Airport on March 2011, and announced nine international destinations on May in the same year. Norwegian announced a new base at London Gatwick airport to open in the spring of 2013 operating new international routes to Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, and Croatia along with flights to Scandinavian cities. The airline expanded its wings to the United States in 2013 as it started serving the Chicago/Rockford International Airport and General Mitchell Airport to Mexico and the Caribbean as a charter airline for Apple Vacations and Funjet Vacations.
