Norwegian Air adds additional low-cost flights to Europe

Scandinavian airline Norwegian has announced it is adding more flights from the US to Europe to its 2020 summer schedule, the company said.

The biggest lifts will be an increase to 10 weekly flights from Los Angeles to Paris (up from daily service–there will be two flights daily on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays); an increase to nine weekly flights from New York to Paris (up from daily service–there will be two daily flights on Mondays and Saturdays); and an increase to daily service from San Francisco to London (up from five weekly flights).

Numerous additional routes out of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Austin, Boston, Denver, and Oakland, among others, are also getting a boost.

Starting this month, Norwegian will consolidate all of its greater New York City routes to operate solely into and out of John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). Barcelona and Rome routes that currently operate from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) will be served from JFK starting October 27.

The United States is Norwegian´s largest long-haul market and is “now the largest market by revenue within our entire network,” Norwegian executive Matthew Wood said in a statement. Wood notes that the carrier´s nonstop flights to Paris, London, and Barcelona have been in particularly high demand.
