Norwegian has received seven nominations in the highly acclaimed Passenger Choice Awards 2014. Norwegian is represented in more than half of the categories, including “Best in Region: Europe” and “Best Overall Passenger Experience”. The Passenger Choice Awards has become one of the industry’s most significant award programmes for the airline industry.

Norwegian has previously won the Passenger Choice Awards in the categories “Best in Region: Europe” and “Best Inflight Connectivity and Communications”. This year, Norwegian has been nominated for the same categories, in addition to “Best Overall Passenger Experience”, “Best Inflight Publication”, “Best Inflight Video”, “Best Ground Experience” and “Best Single Achievement in Passenger Experience” for Norwegian’s interactive ‘Geotainment’ moving map.

“It is a great pleasure that Norwegian’s employees’ hard work is valued so high among our passengers. To be nominated in seven categories together with many of the leading airlines of the world shows that our product, service and innovative way of thinking is highly appreciated. This is fantastic news,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer.

The Passenger Choice Awards has become one of the industry’s most significant award programmes for the airline industry. This is because winners are chosen based on customer feedback. The Passenger Choice Awards comprise 13 individual categories and were created to give the flying public a voice in the passenger experience. The survey is open each May and June at www.passengerchoiceawards.com, and passengers are encouraged to vote every time they fly.

The winners will be announced at the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) Awards Ceremony on September 15, 2014, in Anaheim, California, USA.

Norwegian voted third best in the world

Norwegian was recently awarded the title “Europe’s best low-cost carrier” for the second year running by the renowned SkyTrax World Airline Awards, where the passengers themselves decide the winners. Norwegian also came third in the vote for “World’s best low-cost carrier”, only beaten by AirAsia and AirAsia X.
