Norwegian to New York

Gatwick Airport has confirmed that Norwegian will introduce its New York JFK service on Thursday 3 July with Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos on hand to see it off.  Boeing 787 flights will operate Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. 

At the time of writing, and for the first month, the cheapest return fare works out £659 return, although this drops considerably for November.  A meal, seat reservation and luggage package starts at £35 one way.

The Ft Lauderdale flights begin the next day (Friday 4 July) and are twice weekly, also operating on a Monday.  For the Florida destination prices start at £479.

The twice weekly Los Angeles operation starts on Wednesday 2 July, and this is flown on a Wednesday and Sunday with introductory fares from £719 return.

Following a report in last week’s BTN (16 June) Norwegian point out that the airline meets all the legal and regulatory requirements in the Open Skies Agreement between the US.  All the routes from Gatwick are operated by Norwegian Air Shuttle, which has the necessary permits to fly to and from the US. www.norwegian.com
