The daily late morning flights between London and Oslo, operated by Boeing 787 Dreamliners offering both our Premium and Economy cabins, are available to book now with fares from only £74 return including taxes.

Our London to Oslo flights will not only provide the most comfortable option to travel to Norway they will also allow UK customers to take advantage of our flights from Oslo to Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Los Angeles.

“North America is a key market for us, with New York continually among our most popular destinations.

“We currently operate 40 long-haul routes across the USA, Canada, Caribbean,  Africa, Middle East and Asia, so it’s great news for our passengers – as well as businesses across the region – that we are able to add another fantastic long-haul carrier to our operation, increasing choice and competition.

“We look forward to seeing Norse expand its transatlantic offer even further over coming months, alongside its connections to Oslo.”
