  • Norwegian, which won the “Biggest new airline in the US market” award at the fourth US ANNIEs, continued to expand its European network with two new services during the course of last week, both of which are operated using its 186-seat 737-800s. The LLC inaugurated on 30 March the 1,468-kilometre sector from London Gatwick (LGW) to Budapest (BUD) with thrice-weekly flights. Next day, on 31 March, the carrier began twice-weekly services (Mondays and Fridays) on the 1,495-kilometre route from Bergen (BGO) to Reykjavik/Keflavik (KEF). Norwegian’s fifth route to Budapest is already operated by easyJet’s daily services, while its second route to Reykjavik/Keflavik, as it already serves the Icelandic capital from Oslo Gardermoen, will face no competition.
