Norwegian Air Exits Bankruptcy Protection & Restarts Its Rewards Program

Norwegian Air entered bankruptcy protection in November 2020 (read more here) and “paused” its Norwegian Rewards program in February 2021 (read more here).

Now, the airline has exited the bankruptcy protection successfully and has restarted its rewards with a caveat (there is a limit on the number of points that you can redeem).

You can access Norwegian Rewards here.

Norwegian has reduced its fleet from 156 to just 51 ending all long-haul flying. The airline has only had less than 10 planes operating domestically since the pandemic began and claims to have enough liquidity to get through Summer 2022.

Here’s the email Norwegian Rewards sent out (Google translate from Finnish):

Conclusion

It was truly a crash landing for Norwegian Air that grew at unmanageable speed in the 2010s. Now it has returned to its roots to mainly flying within Norway and to/from Nordic countries.

The airline has loaded some European routes that are bookable from June 2021, but I would be very hesitant to book anything operated by Norwegian right now until they have firmed up the schedule.
