Norwegian expanded its offering from Northern Europe to Spain last week, as it launched three new services. London Gatwick (LGW), where the Nordic carrier is building up its new base, saw the inauguration of weekly flights on the 1,300-kilometre route to Palma de Mallorca (PMI) on 31 March. Competition on the route comes from easyJet (22 weekly frequencies), Thomson Airways (3), Monarch Airlines (2) and Thomas Cook (2). Additionally, the carrier commenced flying on four routes to Alicante (ALC) and now offers weekly services to Molde (MOL) and Tromsø (TOS) in Norway, as well as from Oulu (OUL) in Finland and Umea (UME) in Sweden. All Alicante routes were launched on 1 April, except for the service from Molde, which started a day earlier.
