Norwegian low-cost carrier Norwegian Air Shuttle (NAS) is set to expand its summer 2024 route network with the addition of 40 new routes to its existing network.
This strategic expansion encompasses nine routes departing from Norway, seventeen from Denmark, nine from Sweden, and two from Finland, further enhancing both leisure and business travelers’ options.
Summer 2024 program
As part of this exciting development, Norwegian introduces new point-to-point routes that promise improved connections and heightened convenience.
Among these additions, travelers can anticipate direct flights between sought-after destinations such as Malaga-Munich, Alicante-Munich, Riga-Corfu, and Riga-Tivat.
The upcoming summer program will encompass an impressive 332 routes, facilitating travel to an impressive array of 123 destinations. Growth like this reflects Norwegian’s strong bounce back after the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the carrier.
Magnus Thome Maursund, Chief Commercial Officer at Norwegian, expressed enthusiasm about the expanded network, stating, “Launching these new routes expands our network and offers our customers more choice.”
“From our bases in Europe, we are also starting new point-to-point routes. We are looking forward to a busy summer season and to welcoming our customers on board.”
The additions to the summer program include several enticing destinations, reinforcing Norwegian’s commitment to providing diverse travel experiences across Europe.
NAS customers can now explore Basel, Lyon, Montpellier, Pristina, Zadar, and Bari, among other exciting locales.
Furthermore, a new route connecting London Gatwick and Gothenburg, operating four weekly flights from May 2, enhances connectivity options for travelers.
As mentioned, key among the new routes is the Munich-Malaga and Munich-Alicante connections, offering travelers the opportunity to enjoy these destinations throughout the summer season.
Norwegian plans on opening multiple additional routes such as Munich out of their Alicante and Malaga bases for spring 2024, further consolidating themselves against the European low-cost giants Easyjet and Ryanair.
Additionally, the new Riga-Corfu and Riga-Tivat routes extend Norwegian’s reach to leisure destinations, with both destinations combining cultural richness alongside pristine beaches.
Magnus Thome Maursund emphasized the allure of these new destinations, stating, “Our exciting new destinations will take travelers to vibrant European cities and destinations with crystal clear waters and sandy beaches.”
“Our job is to make sure we get our customers to where they want to go and that their journey is as pleasant and smooth as possible,” he concluded.
With an anticipated fleet of around 90 aircraft, Norwegian is well-positioned to deliver on its promise of an extensive network.
The airline’s commitment to operational excellence is underscored by its recognition as the most punctual airline in Europe for several consecutive months, reinforcing the reliability and efficiency that passengers can expect when choosing Norwegian for their travels.
As travelers eagerly plan their summer getaways, Norwegian’s expansion not only broadens the horizons of potential destinations but also ensures a high standard of service and operational performance.
The airline’s continuous efforts to enhance its network reaffirm its status as a key player in the aviation industry, dedicated to meeting the evolving needs of today’s discerning travelers.
