Norwegian started non-stop service to Europe from three new North American airports including John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport; Miami International Airport; and San Francisco International Airport on Sunday (31 March) as well as additional service from Boston Logan International Airport.
For the first time, Norwegian will be operating at Miami and San Francisco airports to offer direct flights at affordable fares to London, while Boston will commence a nonstop route to Rome. All new US routes will be served by the Boeing 787 Dreamliner while a Boeing 737-800 will operate Norwegian’s first transatlantic route from Canada.
Norwegian founder and chief executive officer, Bjorn Kjos said: “We are continuously reinforcing Norwegian’s commitment to the U.S. as this is one of our most important markets. Transatlantic low fares resonate very well with both American leisure and business travelers, especially when matched with our award-winning inflight experience. Our new routes and increased frequencies will make us even more competitive, while offering Americans more options and more ways to save and enjoy travel.”
The new service from Boston to Rome will operate four times a week. Norwegian currently operates non-stop flights from Boston to London and Paris. On 2 May, the airline will also launch a non-stop route from Boston to Madrid.
Miami and San Francisco will officially be the new home of Norwegian’s nonstop route to London starting this weekend as the service was previously operated from Fort Lauderdale and Oakland airports, respectively. Miami to London begins as a daily service while San Francisco will offer flights five times a week.
Norwegian said it committed to growth in the Bay Area, with seven non-stop routes to Europe operating from its two leading airports, Oakland and San Francisco.
Additionally, the inaugural flight from John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport to Dublin takes off this Sunday. The airline’s first-ever transatlantic route from Canada will be summer seasonal, with flights operating four times weekly on a Boeing 737-800.
