The low cost Norwegian Air Argentina will start flying from February 14 between London and Buenos Aires four times a week, assured Télam.

The Norwegian company said it plans to expand by hiring Argentine personnel and that by the end of the year it expects to receive its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft to start international flights.?

Ole Christian Melhus, director of the company, the objective "is to progressively increase services, both in terms of the 72 domestic and regional routes and the 80 international routes that were authorized for us".

"We will progressively receive aircraft until we reach a number between six and ten before the end of the year, in addition to the Boeing 787-9 for long-range flights," he said.

As for the operations in the country, Melhus said that they will start them "to the most important cities or cities with the greatest tourist flow, such as Cordoba, Mendoza, Ushuaia, Bariloche, Salta and Iguazú", but then they will "gradually cover other destinations less required. "

"In each place we will have our own staff, in the cases of those destinations with a lot of movement, such as Córdoba and Mendoza, or mixed personnel, or in some places we will hire a provider of services," he said.

On the other hand, he explained that he prefers to refer to the company as "low fare" and not "low cost (low cost)" and it differs from the rest of the low cost companies in which "we prioritize safety and efficiency above all. "

Norwegian reviews on SkyTrax do not look too promising.

"Low cost" airlines always struggle to get decent reviews - it can be used as an excuse to not be on time and provide lesser service. You get what you pay for as they say. Still any competition is usually a good thing because it puts pressure on prices and hopefully provides incentive to let market forces work and improve service.

I agree that any competition would probably be helpful. But Jetblue, Southwest, were two low cost airlines in the US that, through their excellent service, morphed into very popular major carriers.

Jetblue is a great airline - haven't flown much with Southwest. The low cost carriers in Australia and Europe are less than impressive relative to the majors.
