Norwegian adds new routes to Amsterdam, Berlin, London

Cologne/Bonn Airport celebrated Norwegian’s arrival at the German airport last week with a Viking boat cake! The airline now operates from Oslo, having previously served Düsseldorf.

Norwegian’s first flight from Trondheim in Norway to the German capital Berlin was celebrated with an aircraft cake. The new route is the airport’s first year-round service to Germany, which both Visit Trøndelag and Visit Trondheim consider an important opportunity to further develop incoming tourism from its German target market.

At Oslo Torp, Norwegian’s new route to Gran Canaria was celebrated with a cake and a raffle among the first passengers. The winner, Guri Hepsø Off, wins two return flights from Torp on Norwegian.

  • Norwegian, Europe’s third largest LCC, has added a further seven new routes this week from its bases across Scandinavia. Of particular interest is the new route between Gothenburg (GOT) and London Gatwick (LGW), which was served by easyJet between September 2010 and January 2012. The only one of these new routes with direct competition is Norwegian’s new Stockholm (ARN) to Amsterdam (AMS) service, which will offer an alternative to passengers travelling with KLM (five daily flights) and SAS (daily flight). Bratislava (BTS), the capital of Slovakia, is a new destination for Norwegian, bringing the number of destinations served from Norwegian’s main hub at Oslo (OSL) to well over 80 this summer. Tomas Kika, Chief Commercial Officer of Airport Bratislava, commented: “I am very happy that it is again Norwegian Air Shuttle that will introduce further new connections from Bratislava to Copenhagen already in May. I believe that the move of flights from Vienna to Bratislava was very good step and beginning of strong and lasting partnership.” Notably, the new service between Trondheim (TRD) and Berlin (SXF), currently Schönefeld – soon Berlin Brandenburg, was a key route required by the Norwegian airport in the Route Shop.
