Time to Derail Norwegian Airline Scheme

August 19, 2014

Congress may be on break, but this month the Obama administration faces a watershed decision with huge implications for the global aviation industry and its workforce.

By Aug. 31, the Department of Transportation (DOT) must rule on Norwegian Air International’s (NAI) application for an exemption that would allow it to begin transatlantic service in the U.S. before it has formally been granted a permit to do so. If approved, the exemption would allow NAI to move forward with a low-road operating model that will undermine good jobs on both sides of the Atlantic. It is time for our government to derail this scheme.
