LGW welcomes four new Norse Atlantic long-haul routes

London Gatwick, part of VINCI Airports’ network, is welcoming a further four new transatlantic routes from Norse Atlantic this summer – alongside two announced last week – making Gatwick the airline’s biggest base.

London Gatwick passengers will be able to fly to seven destinations with Norse from September. Alongside its existing New York route, the airline is adding services to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington DC and Boston – as well as Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, announced last week.

The new flights – spanning the USA’s east and west coasts – mean half of Norse’s fleet will be based at London Gatwick this summer and passengers will benefit from the widest choice of stateside destinations on Norse’s network.

  • Daily flights to New York, currently operating
  • Four flights a week to Orlando, from 25 May (increasing to daily in peak summer)
  • Three flights a week to Fort Lauderdale, from 26 May
  • Six flights a week to Washington DC, from 1 June
  • Daily flights to Los Angeles, from 30 June
  • Three flights a week to San Francisco, from 1 July
  • Five flights a week to Boston, from 2 September

Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO, Norse Atlantic Airways said: “This marks an important moment for consumers as we celebrate serving more destinations to the US from London Gatwick this summer than any other airline. The addition of direct flights to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington and Boston to our already popular New York, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale/Miami services will provide greater choice and value for consumers.

 “We have made a significant investment in our UK airline, based at London Gatwick Airport, and now employ over 370 colleagues at our London base.”
