- Norwegian, the third largest LCC in Europe, which in the previous week linked Málaga with Warsaw Chopin, expanded its presence in the US with three new services during the course of last week, all of which are operated using its 291-seat 787-800s. On 28 February, the carrier launched twice-weekly flights (Mondays and Fridays) on the 6,204-kilometre sector from Copenhagen (CPH) to New York JFK (JFK), which will increase to four times weekly from 28 April. Furthermore, on 1 March, the LCC inaugurated twice-weekly flights (Saturdays and Tuesdays) on the 9,051-kilometre sector from the Danish capital to Los Angeles (LAX), which increase to thrice-weekly services from 1 May. Lastly, on 2 March, Norwegian launched a new route to Los Angeles (LAX), this time from Stockholm Arlanda (ARN), with twice-weekly flights (Wednesdays and Sundays), which will see an increase in frequency as well, to thrice-weekly flights from 30 April. No other carrier serves these three airport pairs.
