Norwegian To Fly Low-Cost On New US-UK Routes

Norwegian is to launch 'game-changing' low-cost long-haul routes from Gatwick to New York (JFK), Los Angeles (LAX) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) in summer 2014. The airline will offer flights from as low as £149 from London to New York, one way; London to Fort Lauderdale will cost from £179, each way; and London to Los Angeles will be £199 one way. "There's great demand for high quality flights at a low fare between the UK and the US, particularly to and from London Gatwick, where no other airline currently offers these routes," said Norwegian's CEO, Bjørn Kjos. "This is one of the most exciting route developments since Gatwick's change of ownership four years ago and shows the benefits to passengers of Gatwick competing with Heathrow on routes, price and service," said Stewart Wingate, CEO of London Gatwick, who also described the route as a 'game-changer'. Norwegian will also launch five new European routes from next spring and summer, including: Santorini; Corfu; Sicily (Catania); Cyprus and Budapest. It will also add more frequencies to existing destinations: Malaga; Ibiza; Split; Dubrovnik; Majorca; Faro; Tenerife; Copenhagen and Barcelona.
