- Norwegian opened its second route between Paris and New York on 28 February, starting a six times weekly service from Paris Orly (ORY) to New York Newark (EWR). The 5,853-kilometre 787-9-operated route complements the LCC’s six times weekly operation between Paris CDG and New York JFK, an airport pair also flown on its 787-9s. The service from Orly to Newark will face direct competition from OpenSkies, however the latter airline will end operations between the two airports in September, the month when LEVEL will start services. This becomes Norwegian’s third European connection to Newark, with it already linking the New York airport to Barcelona and Rome Fiumicino, while from Orly this is the airline’s first long-haul route. It already links Paris’ second-largest airport to Copenhagen, Helsinki and Stockholm Arlanda year-round, while also offering a summer seasonal link to Bergen. As well as its latest long-haul service, Norwegian opened a second route to Paris this week, with it now linking Oslo Gardermoen (OSL) to Paris CDG (CDG). Opened on the same day, the LCC will also offer a six times weekly link on the 1,357-kilometre European capital connection. Operated on its 737-800s, Norwegian will face direct competition from Air France (17 times weekly) and SAS (six). This becomes the LCC’s first short-haul service from CDG.
