Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos said: "Today's announcement represents Norwegian’s coming of age in Spain. Figures speak volumes: Norwegian offers 133 routes in and out of 15 Spanish airports, of which six are operating bases, and employs almost 900 people in the country. One-fifth of our entire fleet is based here. The launch of this first batch of seven domestic routes makes our commitment to Spain all the more evident." Mr Kjos added: "What’s more, today’s launch is first and foremost a move for the public good, for it will help reverse the trend whereby the market between the Continent and the Canaries was suffering a constant reduction in capacity with a commensurate increase in the price of air fares."
