  1. LONDON, Sept 13 (Reuters) - Norwegian Air Shuttle said it is still talking to Ryanair RYA.I about a flight connection service after Norwegian agreed a partnership with rival easyJet EZJ.L .

    British budget airline easyJet launched a new booking platform on Wednesday to allow customers to more easily connect onto long-haul flights with other airlines, moving ahead of its rivals in a potentially lucrative market.

    "We're still talking to Ryanair," Norwegian Air Shuttle's Chief Commercial Officer Thomas Ramdahl told Reuters on Wednesday. "We have a solution that works for two parties within the low-cost model, so we can easily bring this solution onto Ryanair if they are willing to join us."

    Ramdahl said the carrier is exploring a similar arrangement with Qantas-owned Jetstar, to service Norwegian's flights to Singapore, and said he anticipated a similar cooperation between Norwegian and a carrier in Asia in the near future.
