Norwegian increases route frequencies from Gatwick to the US

Norwegian is continuing its growth at London Gatwick Airport with the addition of over 150,000 extra seats for this summer on its long-haul network, following high demand on some of its most popular routes to the US.

From 25 March passengers will now be able to book an additional 10 weekly flights to Los Angeles, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Oakland and Boston, giving passengers even more choice and flexibility when travelling to the US.

The carrier will run 11 weekly flights to Los Angeles – increased from a daily service with four additional flights departing on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

It will also now operate seven weekly flights to Boston – increased from four to a daily service. Services to Oakland will be increased from five to six a week. Fort Lauderdale will now be serviced three times a week rather than two and Orlando four times a week, upped from three.

Norwegian’s long-haul flights from London Gatwick are operated by a fleet of new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Norwegian chief commercial officer, Thomas Ramdahl said: “With our US flights proving to be incredibly popular we have chosen to increase frequency to the States, with over 150,000 additional seats going on sale for this summer.

“We are giving both leisure and business travellers more choice and flexibility when travelling from London Gatwick along with attractive fares, all on board our fleet of brand new Dreamliner aircraft.

“The UK continues to be the centre of our long-haul growth and this year will be our busiest yet at London Gatwick with increased frequency and new routes to the US launching just next month, as we continue to grow the number of great value flights to the States.”

The airline is also launching two new direct routes from London Gatwick to the US next month, with the addition of a daily service to Chicago starting on the 25 March and a four-weekly service to Austin commencing 27 March.

Norwegian carries more than 5.8 million UK passengers each year to over 50 global destinations. It has more than 200 new aircraft on order.
