Norwegian expands with five new Spanish routes and one Transatlantic

On 31 March, Norwegian touched down at Edinburgh Airport with twice-weekly flights from Malaga, a sector already served by Ryanair’s six weekly services and Jet2.com’s four weekly departures.

  • Norwegian continued to expand rapidly with the addition of six more routes this week. Interestingly, the LCC started a new transatlantic route, namely the addition of weekly (Saturdays) flights from London Gatwick (LGW) to Orlando (MCO). This is the airline’s third route to Orlando, as it already flies from Copenhagen and Oslo Gardermoen. In addition, the carrier connected Madrid (MAD) to Birmingham (BHX) and Dubrovnik (DBV) on 31 March, while on 4 April it added flights to Catania (CTA) and Malta (MLA) from the Spanish destination. Commenting on the route to Orlando, Thomas Ramdahl, CCO, Norwegian, said: “Norwegian already flies between Orlando and Oslo, and this is a very popular route both for Americans and Europeans. We’re therefore very happy to celebrate these new routes between London and Orlando. Earlier this week we also celebrated our very first flight between Copenhagen and Orlando. The travelling public deserves affordable fares and flexible tickets across the Atlantic.”
