Norwegian airline passengers donate £40,888 to UNICEF in six weeks

The low-cost airline Norwegian has “extended its partnership with UNICEF by introducing a new function enabling passengers to donate funds when purchasing their flights online.

Through technology from the IT company Amadeus, customers have the option to donate £3, £5, £10 or £15 when they book their tickets.

Within the first six weeks, passengers have already donated over £40,000 to UNICEF’s work for children worldwide.

The airline and UNICEF have held a signature partnership since 2007, with Norwegian introducing “a number of initiatives to support UNICEF’s work”.

Bjørn Kjos, Norwegian CEO, said: “I would like to thank all of our wonderful passengers for their generosity so far this summer. More than £40,000 donated in just 6 weeks shows that if passengers contribute even a small amount, it can make a huge difference in helping give children all over the world a better future.”
