Norwegian gets the permission to use crew from other continents on Norwegian-registered aircraft, the  newspaper Dagens Næringsliv reports.

The issue has been under circulation for comment since March.
– No party could argue that the  assessment of the Legislation Department is incorrect. Because of this we have changed the regulation , labor minister Anniken Hauglie  says to DN.
Norwegian has long believed that the way the Norwegian authorities have applied the Immigration Regulations has prevented them from making use of Asian staff on Norwegian registered aircraft. Now the airline will be permitted to use Asian staff on those kinds of aircrafts, after three years of conflict after they started long-distance flights.

– On our part, we consider this to be an affirmation of what we always believed to be right. We are in the right, when askint to be treated the same as other airlines, Anne-Sissel Skånvik, Communication Manager, Norwegian, says.
