Airlineratings.com is behind the annual awards. They are presented by publication The West Australian.

“Norwegian has re-written the low cost book and delivers outstanding value to its passengers,” a press release published by the airline quotes website Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas as saying.

Norway-registered Norwegian Air Shuttle (NAS) has been fighting a long-running battle to fly routes to America under the EU-US Open Skies Agreement via one of its subsidiaries – Norwegian Air UK.

This transatlantic feud has seen fierce opposition from unions, airlines, and US Senators.  

Norwegian already flies routes from Britain to America via another of its subsidiaries, Norwegian Air International, using their Ireland-registered Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

The US Department of Transport dismissed Norwegian Air UK’s application this summer.

“You know your airline is a winner when other airlines try and block your innovation and low fares,” airlineratings.com’s Geoffrey Thomas is also cited as commenting about their award, according to Norwegian’s press release.

Norwegian is not the darling of some passengers’ reviews, however. The airline gets an average trip experience score of four out of ten stars, where one is ‘very poor’, and ten ‘excellent’.

While the carrier escapes the zero-star ‘very, very poor’ rating, seven of ten reviews on airlineratings.com show a single overall rating star – 120 reviews had been submitted at time of writing.

These passengers are listed as coming from Australia, Poland, Spain, the UK, and the US.

The remaining three passengers gave Norwegian three, four (both from the US), and six (from the UK) stars overall, respectively.
