Norwegian Air not expecting to fly Boeing 737 MAX this year - CEO

OSLO, Sept 2 (Reuters) - Norwegian Air does not expect to fly its 18 grounded Boeing 737 MAX aircraft this year, the carrier's interim Chief Executive Geir Karlsen told Reuters on Monday.

Talks with Boeing regarding a compensation are still ongoing, Karlsen said.

"We are actually planning on not having the MAXes flying this year, in 2019," he added.

The company said in July that it expected its 737 MAX aircraft fleet to return to service in October. (Reporting by Victoria Klesty, editing by Terje Solsvik)
