On Friday (December 22, 2023), Norse Atlantic Airways announced the opening of ticket sales for their new route between Athens (ATH) and New York (JFK) with introductory one-way fares from €239 including taxes and fees.  The route will operate up to five times weekly from May 30th through October 26, 2024. 

In Friday’s announcement, Norse Atlantic Airways’ Founder and CEO, Bjørn Tore Larsen, said,

“We are thrilled to announce the commencement of ticket sales for our Athens to New York JFK route.  This launch underscores our commitment to meeting the evolving travel needs of our passengers.  We believe this route will not only cater to the demand for travel to Greece but will also create opportunities for cultural exchange and business collaborations between these two vibrant destinations.”

Also commenting on the launch of Norse’s new route, Athens International Airport’s Director – Communications and Marketing, Ioanna Papadopoulos, added,

“We are very excited with Norse Atlantic Airways’ announcement for the launch of their Summer 2024 direct operations on the Athens – New York / JFK route.  This is a truly spectacular development for our airport, our city and our country, enhancing connectivity and offering a wide range of traveling options to the wider public.  The US has traditionally been the most dynamically developing market for Athens and especially in 2023, passenger numbers between ATH and all US destinations have been soaring, demonstrating double digit increases vs the pre-pandemic era, with New York topping the list.  We are absolutely certain that the route will be a tremendous success, as passengers will enjoy the excellent product offered by Norse Atlantic Airways.  We are committed to working closely together in order to substantially contribute to and enhance the successful performance of this new route.”

Norse Atlantic’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners are configured with Economy and Premium cabins, and customers can choose between Light, Classic and Flextra fares.  Light fares represent the best value, while Flextra fares include the maximum baggage allowance, two meal services and an enhanced airport and onboard experience and added ticket flexibility.  Each seat is equipped with a state-of-the art inflight entertainment (IFE) experience, and Premium cabin seats feature a generous 43-inch seat pitch and a comfortable 12-inch recline.
