ACMI/Charters – A Strategic Move

Norse Atlantic Airways made a strategic move by operating 5 ACMI/charters during the month of September.

This decision has not only contributed to the airline’s positive revenue stream but has also demonstrated its ability to optimize fleet utilization efficiently during the transition to the winter season.

New Announcements

At the beginning of the month, the carrier announced its new Paris to Los Angeles route, set to commence in May 2024.

This expansion signals the airline’s commitment to offering diverse travel options to its passengers, catering to the needs of those planning their journeys well in advance.

In a move that benefits its customers, Norse Atlantic Airways extended the availability of its flights across the summer network until October 2024.

This extension will enable travelers to plan their trips for the upcoming year while taking advantage of competitive prices.

Insights from the CEO

Bjorn Tore Larsen, the CEO and Founder of Norse Atlantic Airways, shared his thoughts on the airline’s September achievements. “We have seen continued strong demand at the beginning of the month,” Larsen noted.

 “As expected, this has begun to soften towards the end of September in certain markets as we transition to our winter schedule.”

“We have already successfully completed five ACMI/charters in September, and this will continue to grow throughout the winter, contributing a positive revenue stream for the company as we optimize the use of our fleet in the most efficient way during this period.”
