Norwegian’s magic new route number is 10

Norwegian’s Oslo Gardermoen to Las Vegas

Norwegian hopes that its new route from Oslo Gardermoen to Las Vegas, a weekly service which started on 1 November, will not be a gamble, and that its success will not be determined by the roll of a dice or the spin of a roulette wheel.

  • Norwegian, the pan-European LCC, launched 10 new routes from seven different bases over the course of the last week. The average sector length of the new city pairs was 2,876 kilometres, with the shortest being the Madrid (MAD) to Marrakech (RAK) route at 1,064 kilometres, and the longest being the 8,240-kilometre transatlantic rotation between Oslo Gardermoen (OSL) and Las Vegas (LAS). Seven of the ten routes will see Norwegian experience head-to-head competition, with the fiercest being on the Manchester (MAN) to Tenerife South (TFS) route, where the seven incumbent carriers offer a combined 43 weekly frequencies. The average weekly frequency of the routes is 2.1.
