The analysis is performed to ensure that the aircraft are handled and flown according to existing regulations and limitations. Crew members, maintenance personnel and handling agents are also required to utilize a web based reporting system where irregularities are logged. These reports are a valuable tool for statistical analysis and trend monitoring.
The aircraft are subject to a stringent maintenance program. Maintenance is performed in accordance with the manufacturers’ requirements and strict international authority regulations (EASA). Norwegian performs both initial quality audits and continuous monitoring of all maintenance suppliers.

Two Operational AOCs

Norwegian currently holds two operational Air Operator’s Certificates (AOC) to secure the company's traffic rights and future expansion. Norwegian Air Shuttle (NAS), based in Norway, and Norwegian Air Sweden. An AOC is an operational and technical approval issued by a country’s Civil Aviation Authority which grants the holder the right to conduct commercial flights.
