In Tuesday’s announcement, Norse Atlantic Airways’ CEO, Bjørn Tore Larsen, said,


“This marks an important day for the UK aviation industry and 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, D.C. and Boston to our already popular New York, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale/Miami services will provide greater choice and value for consumers. The Norse team are disruptors. We look forward to making our unbeatable product available to even more customers this summer, as we build the industry’s first successful low cost long haul airline.


“We have made a significant investment in our UK airline, based at Gatwick Airport, and now employ over 370 colleagues at our London base. I am very pleased that we are fulfilling our pledge to create competition in the transatlantic market that will benefit consumers, stimulate business travel and lead to job creation on both sides of the Atlantic.”


Also commenting on Norse’s network expansion, Gatwick Airport’s Chief Executive Officer, Stewart Wingate, said,


“We are delighted to welcome four new Norse Atlantic routes this summer, giving passengers a fantastic choice of seven US destinations at excellent value, whether for holidays, business or visiting family and friends. The new services mean Gatwick and Norse will provide an increasingly competitive offering, which is great news for passengers across London and the South East, as well as businesses in the region.”


Currently, Norse Atlantic operates direct daily service between London and New York. Service to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale will start in May with return fares from £409 including taxes.


Norse Atlantic’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners are configured with Economy and Premium cabins, and customers can choose between Light, Classic and Plus fares.
