OSLO (Reuters) - Norwegian Air's planned purchase of 50 new Boeing MAX 8 aircraft includes provisions to end all legal disputes between the two companies, Norwegian's Chief Executive Geir Karlsen told Reuters on Monday.

The deal includes a compensation to Norwegian of around 2 billion Norwegian crowns ($212.2 million) as a settlement for previous disputes over MAX and Dreamliner deliveries and technical issues, he said.

($1 = 9.4243 Norwegian crowns)
