Airline startup Norse Atlantic ASA took delivery of the first of a fleet of Boeing Co. 787 Dreamliner jets ahead of a planned beginning of transatlantic flights in spring 2022.

The carrier, led by shipping entrepreneur Bjorn Tore Larsen, will continue to receive as many as 15 of the planes through April and they will be based in Oslo, Norse said in a statement on Monday. The initial Dreamliner is leased from BOC Aviation Ltd.
