Norwegian startup Norse Atlantic will soon be able to operate flights to the United States. The carrier received tentative approval from the US Department of Transportation for its requested access to the US market.

Norse Atlantic Airways may soon be flying between the US and Europe, replacing Norwewgian’s long-haul abmitions with fresh funding.
