Norwegian Airlines resumes its operations in the Canary Islands today, with a flight that will land in Gran Canaria at 4.20pm from Oslo, with the return leg to the Norwegian capital departing at 5.15pm, a route that will have a regular slot every Saturday.

A statement from the airline highlighted that last Wednesday it resumed its operations to Alicante, Malaga, and Palma de Mallorca, and then on Thursday it was Barcelona's turn.

In total Norwegian has restarted 14 routes in Spain, and 76 in the whole of Europe, so the company has expanded its operational fleet by twelve extra aircraft, thus going from eight to twenty active planes.

This reopening of operations is in response to the increase in demand from passengers, at a time when other airlines are also resuming their flights on the continent, underlining the fact that the company only operates thirteen domestic routes between Norwegian airports.

Norwegian also recalls that it is the highest contributor in passenger volume between the Canary Islands and Scandinavia, with 806,504 passengers transported in 2019, and a market share of 32.1% in that sector.
