OSLO (Reuters) – Norwegian Air will lease planes and postpone the sale of older models in its fleet following the grounding of its Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, the company said on Monday.

The budget carrier will also use some of its bigger Boeing 787 Dreamliners to offset the effects of the grounding of its 18 MAX jets – about 11 percent of its fleet – after an Ethiopian Airlines MAX plane crashed earlier this month.
