Many Norwegian customers reacted to the short period they had to pay air passenger tax introduced on June 1st. Now the company exposes the payment deadline.

– It’s still a holiday for many travelers, so therefore we have decided to postpone the payment deadline by one week, said by communications director Lasse Sandakerveien-Nielsen in Norwegian to newspaper Aftenposten.

It was in June that several travelers, who had booked and paid for their trips before tax was a fact, received a demand of 80 to 88 million NOK on email from Norwegian. Initially customers were a little over one month to pay, with a deadline of 1 August.
Sandaker-Nielsen said to the newspaper that “hundreds of thousands” have paid, but will not provide any more precise figures or say how many who have not yet paid.
