NEW YORK CITY (OCTOBER 11, 2019) – Norwegian, the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline, is increasing frequencies from the United States to its most popular European destinations for the summer 2020 season as the airline continues to invest in this pivotal growth market.
A large number of Norwegian’s U.S. long-haul routes will see added frequency for upcoming popular summer season, most notably Los Angeles-Paris increasing to 10 weekly flights; New York-Paris to 9 weekly flights; and San Francisco-London to daily service. Routes such as Los Angeles-Barcelona; Los Angeles-Madrid; San Francisco-Barcelona; Austin-London; Denver-London; Los Angeles-Rome; and Boston-Paris will also have frequencies enhanced due to popular demand.
“The United States is Norwegian’s key market for long-haul routes and is now the largest market by revenue within our entire network. Our nonstop routes to Paris, London and Barcelona have been in very high demand by American and European travelers alike, and we continue to bolster capacity to meet the demand. Paris, in particular, has seen rapid growth in recent years, now served by seven U.S. gateways and we see potential for more. With this expansion, we anticipate a very successful summer 2020,” said SVP Commercial at Norwegian, Matthew Wood.

Austin-London Four weekly flights (up from three weekly summer 2019)
