Norwegian extends Gategroup partnership


Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA and Gategroup have agreed to extend their partnership for Norwegian’s long-haul services for three years until April 2017. gategroup will focus on last-mile services and continue delivering amenity kits, equipment and security services to Norwegian.

The two companies worked closely together to launch Norwegian’s long-haul product. Furthermore, Gate Gourmet will continue to provide last-mile services to Norwegian’s short-haul network. In April 2014, Gate Retail Onboard (GRO) will terminate retail services for Norwegian’s short-haul flights as part of the Group’s ongoing restructuring efforts in Europe. GRO will no longer be the “merchant of record” for Norwegian, which will lead to a consolidated annual decrease in revenue of approximately CHF 50 million (CHF 34 million in 2014) at the Group level, with an expected neutral impact to the EBITDA.
