Norwegian cancels Boeing orders
Norwegian , the Oslo-based low-cost airline carrier, which is currently in a reported financial restructuring process, due to effects of the coronavirus crisis said on 29 June that it was terminating orders for 92 737 Max and five 787 Dreamliner’s,, as well as the GoldCare service agreements related to the two types according to news reports.
“Norwegian has in addition filed a legal claim seeking the return of pre-delivery payments related to the aircraft and compensation for the company’s losses related to the grounding of the 737 Max and engine issues on the 787,” the airline states in a Norwegian stock exchange filing.
It claims the worldwide grounding of the Max as well as the “long-running reliability issues [of the 787]… resulting in premature and unplanned maintenance which has disrupted the company’s operations” have “caused significant losses” for the airline. Norwegian’s 787 fleet is powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines.
Norwegian adds that it has been negotiating with Boeing, but that this dialogue has not yet “led to an agreement with a reasonable compensation to the company”.
