Norse Atlantic Airways has launched new routes from London-Gatwick Airport (LGW) to Los Angeles and San Francisco, swiftly proceeding with its United States network roll out plans.
Just ahead of the Fourth of July holiday, the Norwegian carrier launched its first-ever services between LGW to Los Angeles International (LAX) and San Franscisco (SFO).
The Los Angeles service will be daily, while the San Francisco route will operate three times per week to begin with. Both routes will be operated by Boeing 787 aircraft, with fares starting at $209 and $229 one-way, respectively.
With the addition of the two new routes, Norse Atlantic now flies to six US cities from LGW, with the other four being New York (JFK), Orlando (MCO), Washington Dulles (IAD) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL). The latter will switch to nearby Miami International (MIA) in September 2023, with services to Boston Logan (BOS) also expected to start during the same month.
This network expansion makes Norse Atlantic the largest operator to the US from London Gatwick.
At the British airport, travelers inbound from the US can connect with Norse Atlantic’s partners easyJet and Norwegian, while those traveling in the opposite direction can do the same with Spirit Airlines.
