Norse on the way

A new Norwegian airline, Norse, has secured slots at Gatwick Airport.

Norse intends to commence flights in June, flying between Norway and the United States and quickly adding London and Paris.

“The tragedy unfolding in Ukraine creates uncertainties within international air transport that we take seriously.  Norse’s flexible fleet arrangements, low cost base and strong financial foundation allow us to take a careful approach to launch. We are in a unique position as we have not yet started flying, which gives us the advantage to enter the market cautiously in line with demand and quickly adapt to unforeseen events. A gradual approach where ramp-up is exclusively driven by demand, will enable us to preserve our strong, debt-free balance sheet and cost base”, said CEO and Founder Bjørn Tore Larsen of Norse.   

The routes from Gatwick are still to be confirmed, but the airline has secured two six-weekly slot pairs from the London airport.
Norse Atlantic Airways will be operating Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
