As recently announced by the Norwegian low-cost long haul airline Norse Atlantic (N0), the company is set to launch two new routes to and from London Gatwick (LGW), starting in May of this year.
With New York’s JFK having been on their charts from the UK for a while, Norse Atlantic have provided the details of two new direct flights to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, as the airline continues to expand its presence in the transatlantic aviation sector.
Starting May 25, travellers can embark on flights between London Gatwick and Orlando, onboard their Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, with fares starting as low as $187 USD one way.
This service is scheduled to operate four times per week in May and June, before turning to a daily service in the peaks of the summer season.
As for Fort Lauderdale (FLL), the route between the two cities will start just a day after, on May 26, with fares starting at $192 USD one way.
This service however, will see a reduced schedule with only three flights per week in May and June, before going four times weekly throughout the summer season.
Speaking on the new route announcement, Norse Atlantic CEO, Bjørn Tore Larsen, said the following: “We are very pleased to announce two new routes to London Gatwick from the US.”
“In addition to our current daily New York flights, we will also be releasing for sale further destinations between US and London by the end of February. As a result, Norse Atlantic Airways will serve more destinations from the US to London Gatwick than any other carrier this summer.”
“We look forward to a busy summer ahead as we bring value fares and a fantastic service to passengers looking to travel across the Atlantic,”
“London is one of the most famous cities in the world and we are so happy to help Americans to experience everything the capital has to offer with such incredible flights.”
“Norse know how important trips like this are to travellers, and for many, London no longer has to be seen as a destination that is out of reach. I’m so excited to strengthen the US-London bond and give people the opportunity to visit overseas,” he added.
Since their inaugural service in June, 2022, Norse Atlantic have greatly expanded their overall network, following in the same tracks as Norwegian’s long haul programme used to do.
The carrier’s new routes to Florida from the UK are just another replica of Norwegian’s route set from before.
With new routes connecting the United States with Germany, Norway, England and France, their presence in the market is not going unseen. Their profile is certainly being raised with the expansions currently in the works for this brand new airline.
