Norwegian Servers Relationship With Birmingham

Published on : Wednesday, October 25, 2017

NorwegianNorwegian became the latest airline to stop its services from Birmingham after announcing that it would cease all its flights from the city to Spain.

 
However, Norwegian is not the only carrier to ends its relationship with Birmingham International, the seventh busiest airport in the UK.

 
The low-cost carrier said its last flights to Malaga, Tenerife and Barcelona would take off this weekend as it reviews its services in the UK.

 
“A natural part of our UK development will see some reductions in routes with lower passenger demand, allowing us to focus instead on providing affordable flights on strong performing routes,” a spokesperson for Norwegian said.

 
In July, United Airlines announced it was stopping the only scheduled service from Birmingham to the US after poor ticket sales. Six months earlier, in January, American Airlines dropped its Birmingham to New York route after just one year. Emirates, too, has announced it is reducing the frequency of its service to Dubai, from three flights a day to two.

 
Flights from Birmingham to New York and Dubai have also been scrapped this year
Other routes set to end include Wizz Air’s flights to Sofia, Vueling’s to Paris Orly, and Flybe to Toulouse.

 
However, there is some consolation for the Midlands airport, which welcomes some 11.6 million passengers a year, – new budget carrier Primera Air recently launched a route from Birmingham to New York, and this week added Toronto.

 
A spokesperson for Birmingham International said: “We’re disappointed that Norwegian will cease flights this winter. All routes, served by the airline, are operated by other carriers from Birmingham Airport.”
