- Norwegian continued to expand rapidly with four new routes during the course of last week, including another transatlantic route, namely the addition of weekly (Tuesdays) departures from Copenhagen (CPH) to Orlando (MCO). This is the airline’s third route to Orlando, as it already flies from Oslo Gardermoen and London Gatwick to the US destination. In addition, the carrier connected Madrid (MAD) to Birmingham (BHX) and Nice (NCE) on 29 March, while the following day it added flights from Malaga (AGP) to Birmingham (BHX). Commenting on the new route launches to Birmingham, Thomas Ramdahl, CCO, Norwegian, said: “We’re very happy to celebrate the new routes from Birmingham to several destinations in Spain. Now travellers in the greater Birmingham area can take advantage of Norwegian’s low fares and award-winning service. Our crew is looking forward to welcoming new customers on board our brand new and more environmentally friendly fleet of 737-800s with free Wi-Fi.”
