Norwegian adds 19 new routes; builds up London Gatwick base

Cutting the inaugural cake for Norwegian’s arrival in Liverpool were Matt Thomas, the airport’s CEO; Daniel Kirchhoff, Norwegian’s Communication Officer; and Jan Mølby, former Danish international and Liverpool FC midfielder.

The traditional water arch, a cocktail of Spanish wine and shopping discounts awaited passengers travelling on Norwegian’s inaugural flight to Madrid. A special cake with Norwegian’s aircraft was then served. Performing the cake-cutting ceremony were the captain on the maiden flight and Madrid Airport’s new Director, Elena Mayoral.
