On Monday (Norwegian Air Shuttle announced that over the past few weeks they have been testing upgrades at their self-service airport kiosks.  Since early March, thousands of customers have taken advantage of the upgrades at Gardermoen, with seat selection one of the more popular features.  Additionally, the carrier has added more functionality to their mobile app, ensuring a faster, easier and more user-focused experience.  The app upgrade ensures the highest quality, both in terms of content and aesthetics.

In Monday’s announcement, Norwegian’s EVP – IT and Business Services, Knut Olav Irgens Høeg, said,

“We have been testing seat booking at a kiosk for just over a week, and see that so far the customers have welcomed the upgrade with open arms.  This has been particularly popular, but we also see that the option to add luggage, Fast Track in the security check and Priority Boarding is to the taste of the passengers.  Norwegian has committed to being continuously innovative in the development of user experiences. In parallel with the rebranding, there will be several technical upgrades with the aim of making air travel even easier for our customers.


“We see that more and more people are using the app both for booking, during and before the trip. Therefore, we are very happy to launch a new version of the app that makes it easier to add previously browser-based functions. This is solely about making the user experience better for our customers.”
