One of Europe's biggest airlines, Norwegian Air, plans to abandon long-haul flights between the US and Europe and focus on building a scaled-down European network, as it struggles to stay afloat amid the coronavirus crisis.The Oslo-based airline will concentrate on offering cheap flights for domestic routes in Norway, across Nordic countries, and to key European destinations, it said in a statement Thursday.Norwegian, known for its red-nosed airplanes and cheap fares, connected cities across the US with cities in Europe, offering nonstop flights for as little as $100. This has ultimately made transatlantic travel more accessible.The airline had already slashed the number of long-haul flights by 40% in March.
