What is the total value generated by foreign tourists travelling with Norwegian to Scandinvia?

A new report finds that in 2017, foreign passengers arriving on a Norwegian flight to visit Norway, Sweden and Denmark contributed to create the basis for 40,000 jobs in the tourism industry. In Scandinavia alone, this has resulted in 2.6 billion euro in additional spending, boosting the local economies and creating new jobs.

In this latest episode of Norwegian – On Air: Sveinung Fjose, partner in Menon Economics and one of the authors of the report shares more about the ripple effects from our operation and how creating value not only is important in generating new jobs, but also creates value for the society as a whole.
