Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA (Ose - NAS), trading as Norwegian, is the second-largest airline in Scandinavia. In 2010, it transported 13.0 million people. As of June 2011, Norwegian operates a total fleet of 60 aircraft; 17 Boeing 737-300s and 43 Boeing 737-800s. The airline has bases at Oslo-Gardermoen, Copenhagen, Stockholm-Arlanda, Helsinki-Vantaa, Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger. It offers a high-frequency domestic flight schedule within Scandinavia and to typical business destinations such as London, combined with a low-frequency service to international destinations from its focus cities.

Norwegian has announced the start-up of long-haul operations in 2012 using Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft. The company has firm orders for six Dreamliners, but is negotiating for another 4 6 aircraft and targeting a fleet of 10 15 Dreamliners in the medium term. The launch routes will be from the Scandinavian capitals to New York and Bangkok.
