Norwegian airline, Irish wages

Danish airline personnel have say they are concerned that the airline Norwegian has registered its new Boeing 787 in Ireland, where labour legislation makes it possible for airlines to hire employees at lower wages than if the planes were registered in Norway. While Norwegian representatives said the manoeuvre would allow the low-cost airline to start flying intercontinental routes, industry analysts said it put SAS on the defensive, since the airline, which is partly owned by the Danish, Swedish and Norwegian states, has declared it would not pursue similar cost-cutting measures. – DR Nyheder
