Jobs boost as Norse Atlantic Airways set to fly from Gatwick

London Gatwick Airport gained a jobs boost, following news that Norse Atlantic Airways will start operating from the airport next year.

 It is a much needed boost for the UK aviation industry, as the sector navigates its way out of the pandemic, says union Unite.

Unite says the airline is expected to hire former employees of Norwegian Air UK which stopped its UK operations earlier this year.

Unite regional officer Claire Simpson said: "It is a much needed boost for Gatwick Airport in particular and the UK aviation sector generally which is still going through a torrid time economically."

"Norse Atlantic Airways is looking to start operations next year and this will be a vital opportunity for former Norwegian Air Resources employees, many of them Unite members, who were made redundant in January."

 "Unite met with Norse Atlantic Airways last week and is set to agree a timetable for further discussions on the collective bargaining agreements for our members, following the signing of the recognition agreement earlier this year," Simpson added.
