Norwegian adds 8 new female tail fin heroes

To celebrate International Women’s Day, Norwegian has announced that the portraits of eight renowned British women will adorn the airline’s tail fins and become ‘Tail Fin Heroes’.

Since the company’s first aircraft took to the skies in 2002, the airline has honoured iconic figures on the tails of its aircraft, celebrating personalities who symbolise the spirit of Norwegian by pushing boundaries, challenging the norm and inspiring others.

The new heroes to be honoured include: mathematician Ada Lovelace; writers Charlotte Brontë and Virginia Woolf; the Civil Rights Activist Emmeline Pankhurst; medical pioneers Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole; British Sportswoman Lottie Dod; and Scientist Rosalind Franklin.

The portraits of these inspiring women will take to the skies later this year and will join Amy Johnson and Jane Austen, who already feature on Norwegian aircraft, to create ten British Female Tail Fin Heroes.

Anne-Sissel Skånvik, chief communications officer for the airline, said: “Our tail fin heroes celebrate those who have been admired for their accomplishments, as pioneers in their field and inspired future generations. We are proud to increase the number of female British tail fin heroes in our fleet to ten. It is a huge honour to have these renowned women adorn our aircraft and to pay tribute to some of the greatest British women of all time”.
