UNICEF & Norwegian Our Partnership and Mission

       Support UNICEF here

For more than a decade, UNICEF has been Norwegian's most important humanitarian partner. Since 2014, the airline has carried out five humanitarian aid flights with UNICEF to the Central African Republic (2014), Jordan (2015), Mali (2017), Yemen (2017) and Chad (2018). Together with our passengers, we have raised millions of dollars that have helped hundreds of thousands of children all around the world. 

Norwegian's support to UNICEF primarily consists of travel funding and fundraisers. In 2015, Norwegian launched a new feature that allows customers to donate funds when booking flights online. Norwegian's passengers also have the option of donating on board the 787 Dreamliners. In addition, Norwegian's dedicated colleagues donate their company Christmas present to UNICEF.

 

      • Five "Fill a Plane" missions completed
      • 11 years of partnership, since 2007
      • 100k+ children have received emergency aid
      • Three aircraft with UNICEF livery

The children are the future and we should do everything we can to make the world a better place for the ones who needs it the most.

- Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos

Fill a Plane 2018

This autumn, Norwegian and UNICEF conducted the most important flight of the year. For the fifth time, we filled a plane with emergency aid to help children in need. Thank you for helping us fill the plane and contribute so more children in Chad can reach their full potential, strengthen their local communities and get the future they deserve.

The goal

was to fill every available inch of the aircraft with aid and improve the daily lives of children affected by war and conflict in Chad.

  • 13 tons of emergency aid
  • Norwegian volunteers - from pilots and cabin crew to engineers and ground handling, to make the flight happen

Other Ways Norwegian Supports UNICEF

Lectures For Foundations

Norwegian's CEO Bjørn Kjos receives many requests to speak at events and give lectures. Neither Bjørn Kjos nor Norwegian charge for this, however, through our partnership with UNICEF, we ask organisations and businesses to transfer 20,000 NOK when Bjørn Kjos holds a lecture. We hope businesses see this as an opportunity to help support an international organisation that works for children's rights.

Onboard Charity Donation Campaign

In October 2017, the largest fundraising event in Norway (TV-aksjonen) took place, with funds going to our humanitarian partner, UNICEF. We took part by raising money on more than 100 flights and managed to raise an impressive 300,000 NOK in just one day.
