LOW-COST airline Norwegian is scrapping all its flights from Birmingham to Spain with effect from this weekend.
Norwegian operates routes to five destinations in Spain – Barcelona, Gran Canaria, Madrid, Malaga and Tenerife.
A statement from the company said, “Following a review of our services, we will cease operating flights from Birmingham to Spain with the last services departing on Saturday, October 28.
It’s a major blow for passengers at the Midlands airport that lost 20% of its traffic when Monarch Airlines collapsed recently.
Norwegian is the third largest low-cost carrier in Europe, the largest airline in Scandinavia, and the ninth-largest airline in Europe in terms of passenger numbers.
