Department of Transportation Rejects Exemption For Norwegian Air UK:

After months of intense pressure from AFA-CWA, ALPA, IAM, TWU, the entire AFL-CIO and other aviation unions, the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) yesterday denied an exemption for a foreign air carrier permit to Norwegian Air UK.


The DOT’s decision to deny an exemption for Norwegian UK is particularly important as the department continues to consider the Norwegian Air International (NAI) foreign air carrier permit. Our advocacy and work on #DenyNAI has increased the pressure on the Obama Administration to reject this exemption.


Our work is not finished. We have to keep up the pressure to #DenyNAI! We need to continue to tell our Representatives to stand up for aviation jobs and co-sponsor H.R. 5090, ensuring that foreign-air carrier permit holders do not undermine labor standards. This requires every single Flight Attendant to speak up and encourage our friends and family to do the same. Visit for more information on how you can help. Only together can we ensure our jobs are protected.
