According to airfleets.net, the jet that crashed was initially registered as EI-FVV when it was sold to Norwegian Air International in June 2017.

Once the COVID-19 pandemic subsided, the planes were transferred to the newly reorganized Norwegian Air Shuttle AOC in June of 2021.

Aside from the dented plane, no casualties were recorded. The 737 won't fly again until the ding is corrected in maintenance.
