Two new year-round routes between Gatwick and Seattle and Denver are being launched by Norwegian in September as the carrier continues its promised transatlantic expansion with a strong pitch to business travellers.
The carrier says more than 125,000 seats are available on the Seattle service, Norwegian’s first route to America’s Pacific Northwest, and the only route between Gatwick and Denver, both strong business destinations.
The twice-weekly Denver service begins on 16 September, increasing to three a week for winter. The four-a-week Seattle service begins the next day, with Norwegian stressing convenient schedules as a major selling point.
Both routes will be operated by the B787 Dreamliner aircraft, with up to 344 seats in two cabins – Economy, with seatback inflight entertainment, and Premium, with more spacious seating, free meal service and a higher baggage allowance.
Norwegian chief commercial officer Thomas Ramdahl said: “These new routes reflect the huge consumer demand on both sides of the Atlantic for quality affordable long-haul travel.
“With our US flights more than 90% full, we are excited to add Seattle to our growing list of destinations while breaking the monopoly on UK flights to Denver. We will continue offering passengers greater choice, convenient schedules and affordable fares.”
