Low-fare carrier to start service in mid-September.
Norwegian Airlines announced is adding low-fare non-stop transatlantic flights from Denver International Airport and one from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to London’s Gatwick Airport. Denver eastbound service begins on September 16 with flights on Tuesdays and Saturdays. There are plans to increase to three weekly flights in November.
The carrier is also debuting from Seattle-London service on September 17 with flights on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays. With these new routes, Norwegian serves from 13 U.S. cities with a total of 48 non-stop routes to Europe, both seasonal and year-round. According to reports, Paris is next.
The very low inaugural fare is attributed to increasing transatlantic competition. Air France and British Airways have indicated plans for low-cost international flights. Stay tuned.
