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.
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 founder Bjørn Kjos
