Yesterday saw Norse Atlantic Airways launch ticket sales for its brand new route between Paris CDG and Los Angeles.
The carrier will be launching services on May 1 next year, with such services running on a six-weekly basis, using its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Norse To Launch Paris-Los Angeles Route…
Flights will depart Paris CDG at 1615 local time, and arrive into Los Angeles at 1905 local time.
As for the return, this will then depart at 2110 local, and then arrive back into Paris at 1700 local the next day.
It’s Boeing 787 Dreamliners seat 56 passengers in Premium Economy, followed by 282 in Economy.
Commenting on this new route was Norse Atlantic Airways’ CEO Bjorn Tore Larsen:
“We are pleased to introduce this new direct route, connecting two of the world’s most vibrant and culturally rich cities”.
“Passengers will now have the opportunity to enjoy a seamless and convenient journey, while experiencing Norse Atlantic Airways’ renowned comfort, outstanding service, and competitive fares.”
Norse Could Take A Lot of Market Share Off Air France On This Route…
Norse Atlantic Airways could take a lot of market share off Air France on the Paris-Los Angeles route. Why? Pricing.
Looking at the pricing for Norse Atlantic Airways, Economy comes in at £360 one way, with Premium Economy coming in at £617.
As for Air France, the pricing differentiation is major. For the same day, this flight will set you back £1,468 for Economy, and nearly £3,000 for Premium Economy. And that is just one way.
Looking ahead, Norse Atlantic Airways may well have hit the market well, and by offering both classes at a cheaper price, it will be sure to make Air France sweat moving forward.
Overall, all eyes will be on Norse to see how this new route performs, and whether they can fill the seats quickly or not.
