With its Fleet of CO2-Friendly ‘Longships’: Norse Atlantic Airways Partners with WebCargo to Propel its First-Ever Digital Sales
September 26, 2023
September 26, 2023 – Norse Atlantic Airways and WebCargo by Freightos, the leading air cargo booking platform, today announced a significant partnership to offer the European-based carrier’s capacities from the biggest European Union cities for instant eBooking and payment on WebCargo.
Norse Atlantic, will soon open up real-time booking for WebCargo’s thousands of forwarders on its flights to and from Europe to seven destinations in the US, Los Angeles International for technology, perishables, and other shipments. Of note for those forwarders booking to Latin America, Norse Atlantic operates out of Miami International, the gateway to South America.
“We’re excited to play a supporting role in Norse Atlantic’s growth as their primary air cargo digital sales platform. It’s a win-win for all–the thousands of forwarders currently on WebCargo, who will benefit from the increased cargo capacity, and the speed and flexibility of WebCargo’s unparalleled platform has the power to boost Norse’s cargo sales and brand growth,” said Manel Galindo, CEO of WebCargo.
Later this year, Norse plans to open capacity from London to Barbados and Jamaica, and from Oslo to Thailand, further expanding WebCargo’s footprint in Asia and the Caribbean.
“Cargo will play an important role in the future of Norse. Partnering with WebCargo is a testament to our commitment to innovation and to delivering exceptional services to our customers,” said Jennifer Bendelow, Head of Cargo at Norse Atlantic Airways. “Our Viking spirit of ingenuity, coupled with WebCargo’s platform, will extend our reach to key freight markets.”
Norse Atlantic exclusively operates Boeing 787 Dreamliners featuring a range of innovative technologies that make them greener, including 25% lower CO2 emissions and 50% quieter than the previous generation of aircraft still in operation with many major airlines globally.
