Björn Kjos, founder and recent CEO of Norwegian Air, one of Norway’s largest airlines, recently stated that Bitcoin payments have great potential as payment methods in their companies.
He mentioned that Norwegian Air has experienced good growth recently, with multiple expansions to neighbouring countries.
His family is also known for investing large amounts in Bitcoin. They themselves have a cryptocurrency exchange plan called NBX, which is expected to become available soon.

In fact, his son Lars, is planning on making an investment of around $ 400,000 in Bitcoin.
Given these developments, it seems likely that Norwegian Air will start accepting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as payment methods. Company officials have confirmed that they are working out options.
In order for this system to be fully activated, NBX will need to be fully operational.
