Norwegian adds to Oslo and Stockholm long-haul networks

Crew and passengers enjoyed the route launch cake at Oslo Gardermoen used to mark the start of flights to San Juan in Puerto Rico on 1 November. Weekly flights are operated by the LCC’s 787-8s.

If you go to Vegas you need to take this picture with ‘that’ sign. However, passengers at Stockholm Arlanda were encouraged to take a selfie beforehand in Sweden instead. Posing with the Las Vegas launch crew from Norwegian were Charlotte Holmbergh Jacobsson, Norwegian’s Head of Press and Lena Rökaas COO Stockholm Arlanda.

  • Norwegian used the second week of the W15/16 season to start six new routes from five of its bases – including long-haul services from Oslo Gardermoen (OSL) and Stockholm Arlanda (ARN). The average sector length of these routes is 4,290 kilometres (up from 2,251 last week) – with the longest route being the 8,530-kilometre Stockholm Arlanda to Las Vegas (LAS) airport pair (last week it was the 4,126-kilometre Gran Canaria to Karlstad route), while the shortest was again a Spanish domestic rotation, this time with the 1,410-kilometre link from Malaga (AGP) to Gran Canaria (LPA). The average weekly frequency of the new routes was 1.8, down significantly from last week’s result of four. This was due in no small part to the two new weekly long-haul operations.
