Norwegian Airlines adds eight new female tail fin heroes in honour of International Women’s Day

Published: 15 Mar 2019

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’. These inspiring women will join Amy Johnson and Jane Austen, who already feature on Norwegian aircraft, to create 10 British Female Tail Fin Heroes.

Since Norwegian’s first aircraft took to the skies in 2002, the airline has always 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.

To celebrate inspirational British women, Norwegian will adorn their aircraft with renowned historical figures who have taken risks and pioneered their field. The new heroes to be honoured include:

  • Ada Lovelace -  British Mathematician
  • Charlotte Brontë - British Writer
  • Emmeline Pankhurst - British Civil Rights Activist
  • Florence Nightingale - British Medical Pioneer
  • Lottie Dod - British Sportswoman
  • Mary Seacole - British Medical Pioneer
  • Rosalind Franklin - British ScientistVirginia Woolf, British Writer

The portraits of these eight iconic British figures will take to the skies later this year as they adorn the tail fins of Norwegian’s aircraft.
