LV-IQZ landed this afternoon at 17:35 ART at a very wet EZE. Route was ARN-LPA-NAT-EZE. Will enter commercial service on Monday, Nov. 19th with flights to NQN and IGR, both from AEP,

Why is this news? Boeing delivers hundreds of 737’s per year.

Because we are on an aviation website full of avgeeks and some of us enjoy reading and keeping up with news about the industry, various a/c types and airlines.

Not interested, don't read. Simple concept.

Congrats to Norwegian and their operations down south! Will be fun to watch how the airline expands down there are more planes are added to the fleet.

I'm really deconcentrated, Norwegian is doing pretty bad here in Norway. Surely Argentines will like the idea of traveling on domestic flights aboard an European airline.

Except that there is nothing European here, except for the name. Crews are from Argentina, flights are domestic, Spanish is spoken on board, planes are registered in Argentina, the airline's AOC is from Argentina, etc. etc. Once past the novelty, people realize this is just another local airline, carrying local people, with Norwegian roots. No different from the Argentinian franchises for LATAM or Avianca.

They are competing against low-cost carriers, flag-carriers, and labour unions in scandinavian markets . All this is risking their reputation that took years to build.

Because it's the start of a new airline. This is actually a transfer from D8 to DN. Right now, all of DN's flights have been on a single B738.

Also, keep in mind that the original AOC for the Norwegian group dates back to 1966 (as BS). After BS collapsed, its AOC and other BS assets were used to start DY.

True.

But why dilute a.net with thousands of threads of petty news and cause the more bigger and relevant news to get drowned in it?

On the a.net home page I see such petty topics on the front page and have to come to the main civil aviation section to hunt and sift through for some more interesting threads.

Norwegian is doing great in Norway. As a mather of fact it is where their business is profitable, unlike most of their other operations

They use to do better, prices are the same as SAS, I really don't notice the difference between the two.

And that is why both Norwegian and SAS operations in Norway are highly profitable as they are running a duopoly where the competition is rather «balanced»

That's why Norwegian lost their charm!, while Wizzair are offering many destinations with attractive tariffs out of Norway.

They are losing business because they are not competitive anymore. Why choose Norwegian when SAS has more to offer for my money.

Actually it's a relevant news about the debut of a new airline in Argentina with bases in Buenos Aires and Córdoba.

Why the ferry flight went to EZE if the hub is in AEP? I know only some international routes are served from AEP (even if this is a non commercial flight). Couldn’t have it landed directly to AEP?

That is like saying Burger King is actually Canadian because it’s headquartered in Ontario....It’s a European company with an Argentinian AOC.

I believe that the customs & tax paperwork is done at EZE - all new planes complete those import formalities there. Besides Norwegian has no hangar at AEP and there are several ones they could take advantage of @ EZE where a new, local historical figure decal is supposed to replace the current one. I reckon they may want to keep it discreet until they unveil it.

Another factor: AEP is bursting at the seams. There are hardly any parking positions left there for an idle 737 and w/o its own hangar.

Norwegian Argentina SA is an Argentinian airline of European capital and a subsidiary of Norwegian Air Shuttle. I appreciate what you are saying, but legally, it's how I explained it.

The third 737 for Norwegian Argentina is on its way. Left Stockholm Arlanda this morning and is currently overnighting @ LPA before departing Sunday AM for EZE via NAT. It is LV-ISQ ex-EI-FVT, (42280/6402) FF: 4/5/17. It will help launch services to BRC and increase frequencies to IGR and NQN. Sources at DN say the aircraft will arrive white-tailed, having previously had English footballer Bobby Moore on its tail.

Indeed LV-ISQ is a white-tailed 737. Seen at ARN yesterday before departing and at NAT today during a refueling stop on its way to EZE.
