Norwegian set for busiest ever UK summer as low-cost US flights prove popular among Brits

Published on : Monday, July 25, 2016

Norwegian-Air-ShuttleNorwegian is expecting its busiest ever British summer with more than 1.3 million passengers taking advantage of the airline’s unique low-cost flights to America and extensive European city and sun routes.


Norwegian has grown to become the third-largest airline at Gatwick and also operates from Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh. Over the summer period from July to September, more than 1.3 million passengers are expected to fly with Norwegian to and from UK airports with up 560 flights per week. A mix of US cities and European breaks are among the most popular routes:


Big Apple at a small cost, City of Angels at a heavenly price
Norwegian is the only airline offering British passengers direct low-cost flights to America – this summer, low-cost flights from London to New York and Los Angeles are the most popular long-haul routes with fares from just £149. Norwegian now serves 8 US destinations in total with flights to Boston, Oakland-San Francisco, Las Vegas, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Puerto Rico also available from £135.


Bargain breaks in the city, sun and Scandinavian

Norwegian also has an extensive, growing European network with flights from UK airports to more than 40 European destinations. This summer, city breaks to sun-kissed Madrid and Barcelona are among Norwegian’s most popular routes while high-frequency flights to Scandinavian cities like Oslo, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Copenhagen also remain popular, all with fares from just £29.90.


Norwegian Chief Commercial Officer Thomas Ramdahl said:

“Whether it’s sun-filled cities like Los Angeles and Madrid, or cultural city breaks like New York and Copenhagen, Norwegian has something to offer on both sides of the Atlantic for cost-conscious travellers.


“We’re delighted that our unique mix of low-cost flights to both Europe and the US continue to prove popular with Brits and we look forward to welcoming a record number of UK passengers on-board this summer.”


Passengers recently voted Norwegian ‘Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline’ for a fourth successive year and the ‘World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline’ for a second year at the renowned Skytrax awards.
