We at Skift are all about disruptors in the travel industry, and today we have an interview with an executive who has been shaking up the airline industry with his long-haul, low-cost strategy.
Norwegian Air has been making headlines over its inexpensive transatlantic flights, its strategy of using airports in smaller markets instead of large international hubs, and its plans to expand to Argentina.
Bjorn Kjos, the CEO of Norwegian Air, was a speaker recently at the first Skift Forum Europe. He also spoke to me, editor and podcast host Hannah Sampson, behind the scenes in the Skift Take Studio.
Our conversation touched on the introduction of $65 one-way transatlantic flights, competition from legacy carriers, the airline’s growth opportunities around the world, and the risks facing global travel.
This mini-episode is one of several conversations we’re bringing you from backstage at Skift Forum Europe.
