Norwegian Scraps Flights
Scandinavian budget airline Norwegian is cancelling all flights from Birmingham to Spain from this weekend.
A statement from the company said: \"Following a review of our services, we will cease operating flights from Birmingham to Spain with the last services departing on Saturday, October 28.
\"A natural part of our UK development will see some reductions in routes with lower passenger demand, allowing us to focus instead on providing affordable flights on strong-performing routes.\"
This follows other scrapped flights from Birmingham with United and American Airlines. Emirates has also reduced the number of flights taking off from Birmingham and Beijing Capital Airlines has withdrawn from a deal made last month with the airport to offer passengers direct flights from Birmingham to China.
Chief executive Paul Kehoe said: \"There is strong demand for flights between China and the Midlands. last year, around 150,000 people flew between our region and China and we have made significant investment over the last two years to offer services with Caissa.
\"We are currently unaware as to the reasons why, given the success of the China services over the last two summers from Birmingham. We are awaiting more information from the tour operator as to why it has made this decision but we are confident we will be able to reinstate services between Birmingham and China in the near future.\"
