Not only because it is a new carrier operating from Wrocław. Norwegian was supposed to take off for the first time from Wrocław two years ago, unfortunately, due to a pandemic the whole operation was cancelled. Now Norwegian has returned to Wroclaw Airport. This is a good sign for passengers, but also for the entire aviation industry.”
