Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA is evaluating plans for a base in Buenos Aires with flights from cities including Oslo, London, Paris, Madrid and Barcelona as the next phase of its long-haul, low-cost expansion strategy.

Services to the Argentinian capital could start in 12 months if government permissions are granted, Bjorn Kjos, the airline’s chief executive officer, said in an interview in Cordoba, adding that the Latin American country’s second-biggest city also has the potential to become a domestic hub.
