Sandefjord Airport Torp celebrated Norwegian’s second route from the airport with a cake. Malaga is now served once a week from the airport this winter, complementing the airline’s Alicante route and filling the gap after Ryanair, which only operates the route during summer.
Cupcakes were served to the first passengers on Norwegian’s route from Gothenburg to Las Palmas in Gran Canaria. Swedavia’s key account & development manager Johan Backlund spoke to the celebrating passengers as the first flight’s captain oversaw the ribbon being cut by two lucky passengers.
Norwegian is new in Turku in Finland, which the airline now serves four times a week from Stockholm Arlanda. Thanks to Juha-Matti Lavonen for the picture from his journey on the inaugural flight!
- Norwegian has added a further six routes to its ever-expanding Scandinavian network. During the last week, it has added weekly, non-stop, ‘winter sun’ flights from Bodø (BOO) and Gothenburg Landvetter (GOT) to Gran Canaria (LPA), from Oslo (OSL) to Madeira (FNC) and from Sandefjord (TRF) to Malaga (AGP). The latter route, Norwegian’s second to Sandefjord 100 kilometres south of Oslo, is scheduled to be operated during winter, whereas the same route is operated by Ryanair during summer. Norwegian has also added Poznan (POZ) to its route network, introducing twice-weekly flights from Oslo (OSL) and making it the third LCC to serve the Polish airport after Ryanair and Wizz Air. Finally, Turku (TKU) in Finland is also a new destination for Norwegian, but this time served four times weekly from its Stockholm Arlanda (ARN) base. It will compete with Blue1’s 22 weekly flights between the two cities. Norwegian will thus join airBaltic, Blue1, Finnair, Flybe, SAS and Wizz Air in serving Finland’s fourth busiest airport (after Helsinki, Oulu and Tampere).
