NORWEGIAN Air has warned customers not fall for a fake competition that claims users will win two free flights.

The scam is being shared on Facebook and claims the airline is giving away tickets to "usher in 2018".
Users who click on the link in the post will be taken to a website where they are asked to fill out a short questionnaire.
Once the survey is finished, it asks you to share the competition on your own timeline before you will be in with a chance of winning.
But unfortunately, the website isn't the real deal. Instead the link takes you to a malware site that can gain personal information from your Facebook page after you've shared it.
It can also post spam on your Facebook page without you giving it permission to.
The Facebook link takes you to a dodgy site with the URL "".
Norwegian airlines has since issued a warning to customers after the Sun Online alerted them to the scam.
A spokesperson for the travel company said: "We take cases of fraud extremely seriously and would like to warn against a false offer that is circulating on Facebook that Norwegian has no association with.
"We strongly advise people to treat this message as spam and not follow the link while our security teams actively investigate the matter.
"We apologise for any confusion this may have caused."
The budget airline is popular thanks to it's cheap long haul flights to the US, like fares starting at £199 from London to Seattle.
The Sun Online has previously reported about how other airlines have also fallen victim to the scams.
