Norwegian expansion continues

More growth is in the air for Norwegian with more flights from Gatwick and, in Ireland, with the launch of the carrier’s first route to Canada, a daily non-stop service from 31 March next year between Dublin and Hamilton-Toronto.

At Gatwick, Norwegian begins new twice-weekly flights Tampa, Florida, from 31 October this year, while the three-a-week service to Fort Lauderdale will become daily. The four-a-week operation to Buenos Aires also goes daily.

There will be four weekly flights to Orlando instead of three, three weekly flights to Las Vegas instead of two and a daily service to Boston, up from five flights a week.

The new Dublin – Hamilton-Toronto service, operated by a new single-class Boeing B737 MAX with 189 seats, will mark the first direct flight between the cities and also Norwegian’s first service between Europe and Canada.

Meanwhile, the airline has taken delivery of its first B737 MAX with an upgraded cabin featuring new slimline seats designed for more comfort on longer routes and more personal space for taller passengers.

The Recaro 3710C seats have a 30in pitch and measure 17.2in wide. Each weighs 1kg less than the older model, reducing aircraft weight by more than 200kg overall, which Norwegian says reduces fuel burn and operating costs.
