Norse Atlantic Airways has launched new nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Berlin with the inaugural flight taking off on Wednesday, December 7, 2022. The route will operate three times weekly with one-way fares from $155.
On Wednesday (December 7, 2022), Norse Atlantic Airways announced the launch of new service between Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (FLL) in South Florida and Berlin (BER). The inaugural flight departed Wednesday evening at 23:30 was scheduled to touch down in Berlin at 14:40 local time today following the 10 hour flight. Prior to takeoff on Wednesday, a launch ceremony was held in FLL’s Terminal 4 departure level where special guests heard remarks from the airport’s CEO and Director of Aviation, Mark Gale, Broward County Commissioner Michael Udine, Visit Lauderdale EVP Tony Cordo, and Norse CEO Bjørn Tore Larsen. The route between Fort Lauderdale and Berlin will operate three times weekly with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and one-way fares from $155.
Speaking at Wednesday’s launch ceremony at FLL, Norse Atlantic Airways’ CEO, Bjørn Tore Larsen, said,
“Norse continues to deliver on our promise to offer affordable value and a quality traveling experience to all. Berlin is a delightful winter destination where travelers can enjoy the snow, Christmas lights, holiday treats, shopping and more. Our affordable fares will allow our customers to use their extra travel dollars to explore Germany and experience new and unique adventures with family and friends. As we celebrate our inaugural service from Fort Lauderdale tonight, we are pleased to now be able to offer direct flights between these two cities.
Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport’s CEO and Director of Aviation, Mark Gale, added,
“It’s an exciting day for FLL as we welcome the airport’s first-ever scheduled nonstop route to Berlin. Norse’s new service between Fort Lauderdale and Germany’s capital city follows its June launch of Oslo, Norway flights. Both routes play a pivotal role in helping reestablish FLL as a transatlantic gateway. We look forward to welcoming other European flights in the near future.”
