Norwegian shifts capacity to key UK-US routes

Low-cost carrier Norwegian will increase the number of weekly services from London Gatwick to four US destinations when its 2020 summer schedule commences on 29th March.

“In response to demand”, the airline will increase its San Francisco service from five-times-weekly to a daily service.

In addition, services to Austin and Denver will increase from three to four services a week, and flights to Tampa will increase from two to three per week.

The network adjustments mean it will reduce services from Gatwick to Buenos Aires to fives flights a week, Miami drops to a six-times-weekly service, Orlando falls to five weekly flights, and services to Rio de Janeiro drop to three times a week.

“In line with our business strategy of moving from growth to profitability we are ensuring that we concentrate on key routes across our network where we see strong demand,” says Matthew Wood, SVP Commercial at Norwegian.

“These frequency adjustments ensure that our customers can have more choice when choosing their flights to the US at fares that remain affordable to all.”

Norwegian carries almost six million UK passengers each year from London Gatwick, Edinburgh and Manchester Airports to 30 destinations worldwide.
