On Thursday (June 27, 2024), Norwegian Air Shuttle announced the launch of several new routes for the winter 2024/25 season.  The carrier will introduce new direct service from Evenes in Northern Norway to London and Milan-Bergamo.  Service from Evenes to London will operate once weekly on Saturdays starting November 2nd, while flights between Evenes and Milan will operate once weekly on Mondays starting December 23, 2024.  Earlier this year, Norwegian launched new Evenes-Palma service, and the carrier now offers three direct routes from Harstad-Narvik Airport and popular European destinations.


In Thursday’s announcement, Norwegian’s Commercial Director, Magnus Thome Maursund, said,


“It is great fun to finally release the news that we are starting new routes from Evenes to London and Milan/Bergamo.  London continues to be a favorite city for Norwegians and in Bergamo in northern Italy it is a short distance to the Alps and great skiing in the winter.  We also expect that many Europeans will use the routes, and find their way to beautiful Evenes and the surrounding areas.”


Also commenting on the launch of the new routes, Destination Lofoten’s Marketing Manager, Vegeir Selboe, added,


“Norway’s launch is a milestone for Lofoten, Vesterålen, Narvik and Harstad, which provides easier access to two growth markets and new connections to Great Britain and Italy. This is a joyous day for locals and guests. Destination Lofoten, Nordnorsk reiseliv, Visit Narvik and Visit Vesterålen look forward to working with Norwegian to strengthen global ties.”


In a separate press release on Thursday (June 27th), Norwegian announced the launch of new direct service between Stockholm Arlanda and Skellefteå Airport in Sweden.  The route will operate five times weekly on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays from October 28, 2024.


In Today’s route announcement, Norwegian’s CEO, Geir Karlsen, said,


“The development in Skellefteå with many companies investing heavily in the region increases the need for good accessibility to the outside world. Currently, there is a limited supply of flights to and from Skellefteå and it is therefore pleasing that we can announce today that we will start flying between Stockholm and Skellefteå.”


Also commenting on the new route, Skellefteå Airport’s CEO, Robert Lindberg, added,


“Skellefteå’s rapid growth requires good accessibility to the outside world. Here at Skellefteå Airport, we see a good influx of passengers and thus a space to be able to expand traffic with a new operator.  I know that this is an important announcement for the business community, the residents and the hospitality industry in Skellefteå.”


Norwegian Air Shuttle was established in September 2002 with four domestic routes and has since carried over 300 million passengers.  The airline Group, including Widerøe, is the largest  in Norway and currently employs approximately 8,200 team members.  Most employees are based in Norway in Oslo, Trondheim, Bergen and Stavanger, or at the company’s head office at Fornebu in Bærum.  The carrier also has offices in Riga and Barcelona, as well as bases in Alicante and Malaga.  The Group’s fleet, including Widerøe, now totals 136 aircraft, with 87 Boeing 737-800 and 737-8 MAX jets in the Norwegian fleet, and 45 De Havilland Canada Dash-8 and three Embraer E190-E2s in Widerøe’s fleet.  Widerøe Ground Handling also serves 41 Norwegian airports.  Norwegian currently offers affordable flights on a short-haul network of destinations in the Nordic countries and to key European destinations.  Norwegian aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 45 percent by 2030.
