Norwegian adds new route to Tampa and ups other service frequencies

posted on 25th June 2018 by Justin Burns

Norwegian will from 31 October this year launch a new twice-weekly service from London Gatwick Airport to Tampa International Airport in Florida.

The airline will also give customers greater choice to Florida and other parts of the world this winter as it launches its winter schedule of long-haul flights from London Gatwick.

Norwegian will also now fly daily to Fort Lauderdale (Miami) from this winter, up from three flights a week, and fly four times a week to Orlando, up from three.

The carrier will also fly daily to Buenos Aires in Argentina from the winter in response to strong demand for the London Gatwick an increase from four flights a week.

Other frequency changes will see Norwegian servicing Las Vegas three times a week, up from two a week and it will also start a daily service to Boston, up from a five weekly service.

Norwegian’s long-haul flights from London Gatwick are operated by brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft offering up to 344 seats in a two-class configuration, economy and Premium.

Norwegian is the second largest long-haul airline at Gatwick with 13 direct long-haul destinations. For winter 2018 the airline will serve 11 routes to the US including the new addition of Tampa.

Other network changes this winter include a recently announced third daily service to JFK, with London Gatwick to Chicago reducing to four weekly flights from a daily service, Oakland (San Francisco) reducing to three weekly flights from four per week and Austin and Seattle becoming seasonal routes from 28 October 2018.
