Norwegian Air has announced changes to its management structure.

    Changes will include the creation of two distinct commercial units, along with “greater employee and customer focus, more efficient operation and, not least, an organisation that facilitates broad cooperation across the business”.

    The new group management changes will be put into effect from 2 June 2020.

    Making the announcement, Norwegian Air CEO Jacob Schram said: “I have been committed to putting in place a management structure that takes us from growth to profitability by delivering our new Norwegian strategy and business plan.

    “In order to run a profitable and sustainable company going forward, I will build the commercial part around two distinct entities with clear P&L responsibilities.

    “We need to be able to attract, retain and develop good people, which is why the responsibility for all the company’s employees is placed in one department. Our employees and their contribution to New Norwegian is vital to achieving the company’s goals.

    “By bringing departments together to focus on our customers we gain insight and power to innovate and use smart choices throughout their customer journey. We will remain true to the core values of Norwegian which have been in place since its inception – a popular company that offers good quality flights at a good price.”

    He added: “I have also been committed to improving operations through a simplified structure, clear roles and responsibilities, as well as even more efficient operations.

    “We will be flexible, actionable, and cooperate well across the group. I am very pleased to have put in place the management team for the New Norwegian and Red Nose Warriors and look forward to working together to make Norwegian the customers’ first choice when we are through this current crisis.”
