The news comes as the multi-award winning airline continue their international expansion and take delivery of more Boeing 787 Dreamliners. Since Norwegian first launched a series of European flights from Gatwick earlier this year, they have proved to be a great success and now with the addition of these direct, international flights and even more European services, the airline is sure to have a bright future.
In the official press release, Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos said:
“There’s great demand for high quality flights at a low fare between the UK and the U.S., particularly to and from London Gatwick, where no other airline currently offers these routes. We look forward to welcome many new customers aboard our brand new aircraft. Launching long-haul routes between Gatwick and the USA is also an important part of our strategy to expand internationally.”
… and Stewart Wingate, who is CEO of London Gatwick Airport added:
“This is one of the most exciting route developments since Gatwick’s change of ownership 4 years ago and shows the benefits to passengers of Gatwick competing with Heathrow on routes, price and service.”
In addition to the new long-haul routes, the five new European destinations from London Gatwick as of spring and summer 2014 are to Santorini, Corfu, Catania (Sicily), Cyprus and Budapest.
If that wasn’t enough news, Norwegian’s services to Malaga, Ibiza, Split, Dubrovnik, Majorca, Faro, Tenerife, Copenhagen and Barcelona will see an increase in frequency.
