Norwegian adds eight new female ‘tail fin heroes’

Among the renowned figures set to feature are mathematician Ada Lovelace, writer Charlotte Bronte and civil rights activist Emmeline Pankhurst.

The additions grow Norwegian’s list of female tail fin heroes to 10, with pilot Amy Johnson and author Jane Austen already featuring.

Norwegian’s newest tail fin heroes will take to the sky later this year.

Anne-Sissel Skanvik, Norwegian’s chief communications officer, said: “Our tail fin heroes celebrate those who have been admired for their accomplishments as pioneers in their field and inspired future generations.

“We are proud to increase the number of female British tail fin heroes in our fleet to 10.


"It is a huge honour to have these renowned women adorn our aircraft and to pay tribute to some of the greatest British women of all time.”

Founder of modern nursing Florence Nightingale, sportswoman Lottie Dod, Crimean War nurse Mary Seacole, scientist Rosalind Franklin and writer Virginia Woolf complete the eight additions.

Norwegian now has 15 British tail fin heroes – 10 women and five men.
