Published on : Tuesday, February 9, 2016

NorwegianNorwegian, the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline, will open its 15th European base at Rome Fiumicino Airport on March 27, 2016. Norwegian’s first Italian base will create a total of 60 jobs for pilots and cabin crew. The airline has additional bases in New York, Fort Lauderdale and Bangkok.

 

“We are very pleased to open our first Italian base at Fiumicino since the airport plays an important and strategic role in our development plans. Rome is the premier gateway into Italy so not surprisingly, Fiumicino generates two thirds of our passenger volume in Italy. This is why, for the upcoming summer season we will put on sale almost 500,000 seats,” said Bjørn Kjos, Norwegian’s founder and CEO.

 

For American travelers, Rome will now be even easier and more affordable to get to. Norwegian will offer service from Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, Oakland/San Francisco and Orlando via its four European gateways to Rome. One-way fares from the U.S. start as low as $250, including taxes and surcharges, depending on the gateway. For Norwegian’s best fares, check out the Low Fare Calendar.

 

In total, Norwegian will offer seven direct routes from Rome to: Bergen, Norway; Copenhagen, Denmark; Gothenburg, Sweden; Helsinki, Finland; London, United Kingdom; Oslo, Norway; and Stockholm, Sweden.
