Norwegian’s Paris CDG to New York JFK and Los Angeles
Before no doubt sampling the route launch cake on offer to mark the start of Norwegian’s new US services from Paris CDG, Koenraad Slembrouck, Ground Operations Manager for Southern Europe, Norwegian and Didier Leroy, Director of Terminal 1&3, Paris CDG had to work up an appetite by cutting the ceremonial ribbon. The LCC started flights to New York JFK and Los Angeles, with a third route to Fort Lauderdale starting in August.
- Norwegian has opened long-haul operations from Paris CDG (CDG), with the start of US services to New York JFK (JFK) and Los Angeles (LAX) on 29 July and 30 July respectively. The two new sectors, both operated by the airline’s 787-8 fleet, have become US routes #25 and #26 from Europe for the LCC, and will be joined on 4 August with a Fort Lauderdale operation from CDG. The 5,829-kilometre, four times weekly sector to JFK will see the more intense competition of the two new airport pairs, with Air France (28 weekly flights), American Airlines (14), Delta Air Lines (seven) and XL Airways France (seven) offering a combined frequency of 56 weekly flights. By contrast, the twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Saturdays) 9,098-kilometre route to LA has three incumbents – Air France, Air Tahiti Nui and XL Airways France.
