CNN reported on Wednesday that low-cost airline Norwegian Air is to operate 76 European routes from its Scandinavian hubs from July 2020.

According to a statement from the airline, these routes will include popular tourist destinations such as Spain, Greece and key European cities.

At the peak of the COVID-19 outbreak in April 2020, the airline reduced its fleet to eight aircraft on domestic Norwegian routes. The airline will reportedly reintroduce 12 aircraft to facilitate the European routes.

In the short-term, the airline has planned to operate flights between London Gatwick to Oslo, London Gatwick to Copenhagen, Edinburgh to Oslo and Edinburgh to Copenhagen from 1 July 2020.

According to Norwegian Air: "London to Oslo will be operated seven times a week, London to Copenhagen six times a week, Edinburgh to Oslo and Copenhagen twice a week respectively."

Also, the airline said travellers aged six years and older must use a facemask, as recommended by the European aviation authorities.
