Norwegian (DY, Oslo Gardermoen) has cancelled all of its outstanding orders for Boeing aircraft, comprising ninety-two B737-8s and five B787-9s, and has also issued a notice to the manufacturer demanding the return of pre-payments and compensation for the technical problems affecting both types.

The carrier said in a stock market filing that both the grounding of the B737 MAX and the Rolls-Royce Trent engine issues affecting the B787s have "disrupted the company's operations and caused significant losses". Norwegian did not reveal the amount of compensation sought and did not clarify whether its claims would also be directed against the British engine manufacturer.

"Norwegian has engaged in a commercial dialogue with Boeing with a view to resolving its 787 and 737 MAX issues and obtaining compensation for its losses. The dialogue has [yet to date] not led to an agreement with a reasonable compensation to the company," the airline said.

Besides the 97 Boeing aircraft, Norwegian also had firm orders for fifty-eight A320-200neo and thirty A321-200NX(LR)s from Airbus as of May 31, 2020.

According to the ch-aviation fleets advanced module, Norwegian Group's existing B737 MAX fleet consists of three units operated by Norwegian, two by Norwegian Air International (D8, Dublin Int'l), and 13 by Norwegian Air Sweden (LE, Stockholm Arlanda). In terms of the B787s, Norwegian operates eight B787-8s and thirteen -9s, Norwegian Air Sweden - three -9s, and Norwegian UK (DI, London Gatwick) - thirteen -9s.
