Norwegian Air Sweden (not to be confused with Air Sweden) is a Swedish airline that flies regular flights throughout Europe. The airline is a full subsidiary of Norwegian, with all flights operated under the Norwegian brand. When booking flights through Alternative Airlines, Norwegian Air Sweden display as regular Norwegian flights.
The airline is based at Stockholm–Arlanda Airport and flies to several destinations across Europe, as well as destinations within Sweden. Overall, it flies to more than 50 destinations.
Norwegian Air Sweden was launched by Norwegian in 2018. The airline was launched and set-up in Stockholm so that Norwegian could gain extra traffic rights for new flights flying from, to and within Sweden and so that it could launch a whole new route network focussed on connecting Stockholm and other Swedish cities to the rest of Europe.
Initially, as well as flying routes that connect Sweden with Europe, the plan was for Norwegian Air Sweden to support Norwegian in flying some of its long-haul routes on an ad hoc basis. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic and reprioritization of Norwegian's schedule, Norwegian Air Sweden will continue to only operate flights within Europe, departing from Sweden.
The airline flies to more than 50 destinations all across Europe. This includes destinations such as Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bergen, Budapest, Dubrovnik, Gdansk, Kos, Lisbon, Krakow, Manchester, Paris, Oslo, Riga, Sicily, Stockholm, Umeå and more.
