NEW YORK - Norwegian announced it will commence service from both Austin and Chicago to London and it will add new routes from Boston and Oakland to Paris.
Norwegian will also increase the frequency of its highly successful New York City to Paris route by complementing its daily service out of John F. Kennedy International Airport with a six-weekly service from Newark Liberty International Airport. Additionally, the airline's Los Angeles to Paris service will be increased by two weekly flights.
"We are excited to add Chicago and Austin to our ever-growing U.S. network. We will now offer nonstop service from 15 U.S. cities to 13 European cities, no other airline can rival that. Within just a year, we have added seven U.S. gateways, creating much greater access for even more Americans to save a tremendous amount of money, and still get to experience one of the world's best airlines," said Bjorn Kjos, Norwegian's Chief Executive Officer.
Norwegian launched transatlantic flights to London back in 2015 and the airline now offers 11 routes from the U.S. to this iconic European city. Service to Paris was launched last July, and with the addition of flights from Boston and Oakland, Norwegian now offers six routes from the U.S. to the French capital. Last month, the airline added nonstop service from the U.S. to Barcelona and in November, Norwegian will introduce direct flights to Rome.
