Published on : Tuesday, October 9, 2018

Norwegian AirlinesNorwegian, the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and Airline of the Year 2017, has become the largest foreign (non-North American) airline in the New York City area, based on passenger numbers. The airline carried 1.67 million international passengers to and from three of New York City’s airports according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s most recent traffic report, surpassing British Airways to reach the top spot.


Since the beginning of 2018, Norwegian’s passenger numbers to and from New York City have grown so drastically that the airline has also overtaken Lufthansa and Emirates to reach the top spot in July.

Kennedy International Airport, Newark Liberty International and Stewart International Airport to: Amsterdam; Barcelona; Belfast; Bergen; Copenhagen; Dublin; Edinburgh; Guadeloupe; London; Madrid; Martinique; Oslo; Paris; Rome; Shannon; and Stockholm. Norwegian launched its first route to New York on May 30, 2013 from Oslo and Stockholm on May 31, 2013.


“Data on passenger numbers released by the Port Authority New York and New Jersey truly emphasizes the strong demand for more affordable international fares, and we are excited that Norwegian flew more customers to and from New York than any other non-North American airline in the 12 months to July 2018,” said Norwegian CEO and Founder, Bjørn Kjos.


“Since our first flight to New York back in 2013, we have continued to exponentially grow our route network, delivering the award-winning combination of affordable fares and friendly service that Norwegian is known for. Our 16 routes from New York City is just a start; we see room for further expansion and will continue to increase our passenger numbers in our mission to both make travel more attainable and stimulate the local economy,” said Kjos.
