Its strawberry time in Denmark. Hence this wonderful cake for the passengers at the gate for Norwegian’s Copenhagen to Boston route inauguration on 12 May, where the 787-8 on flight DY7145 took-off at 17:20 from Gate C33. Cutting the ribbon were Copenhagen Director of Route Development Morten Mortensen and Frank Nordbjerg Olesen, Norwegian Sales Manager for Denmark.
Celebrating the fact that London (Gatwick) is now served non-stop from Oakland by Norwegian are: John Albrecht, Oakland Airport Aviation Marketing Manager; Lars Sande, Norwegian SVP Sales & Distribution; and Bryant Francis, Port of Oakland Director of Aviation.
- Norwegian has begun operations on two new transatlantic city pairs, linking Copenhagen (CPH) with Boston (BOS), as well as London Gatwick (LGW) to Oakland (OAK). The LCC now flies to six US destinations from the Danish capital (Los Angeles, New York JFK, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas and Orlando) and six from Gatwick (Los Angeles, New York JFK, Fort Lauderdale, Boston and Orlando). Both routes started on 12 May and are flown by the carrier’s 787-8s. While the weekly (Thursdays) service to Boston will face direct competition from SAS (daily), the Oakland operation has no incumbent airlines. “This is a significant development for travellers on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Bryant Francis, Port of Oakland’s Director of Aviation. “Norwegian has made a very smart move connecting two globally leading metropolitan areas in a way that is convenient and affordable. Now, nearly four million East Bay residents are able to travel to this top European destination using the airport closest to their homes and businesses while enjoying award-winning service at very attractive prices.”
