Norwegian To Lease Multiple Planes To Cover 737 MAX and 787 Problems

Norwegian has been leasing a number of aircraft due to shortages in its fleet. While these shortages were originally due to grounded Boeing 787 aircraft, the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft has exacerbated the issue. As such, Norwegian has needed to lease three aircraft from different airlines.

Wet leasing differs from dry leasing substantially. When wet leasing an aircraft, the leasing company is effectively operating the flight on behalf of the airline. This means that the airline pays a fee, and everything is handled on their behalf. As such, the wet lease includes fuel, cabin crew, and service.
