OSLO, NORWAYNorway's new transatlantic LCC Norse Atlantic Airways has unveiled the images of its first aircraft featuring the airline's livery.

The aircraft with the registration LN-LNO is the ex-Norwegian Boeing 787-9 and the first of six aircraft that the carrier plans to lease from AerCap, alongside three 787-8s.

The carrier also intends to lease six further 787-9s from BOC Aviation.

Norse Atlantic expects to serve with 15 of its incoming 787s by summer 2022, following a planned inaugural flight in the first half of the same year.

Norse Atlantic is poised to fill the gap on transatlantic routes between Europe and the USA, which was abandoned by Norwegian after financial losses due to the pandemic.
