Norwegian says it expects to set British summer records with more than 1.3 million passengers on its 560 low-cost flights per week to America and on European routes.
The airline is now the third-largest carrier serving Gatwick and also flies out of Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh.

Norwegian is offering fares as low as £149 on routes to New York and Los Angeles. Fares to Boston, Oakland-San Francisco, Las Vegas, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale and Puerto Rico start at £135.

For those who prefer to visit sunny España, Barcelona and Madrid tickets are going for tapas money–as little as £29.90. For that fare you can also relax in the cooler climes of Scandinavia with flights to Oslo, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Copenhagen.
“Whether it’s sun-filled cities like Los Angeles and Madrid, or cultural city breaks like New York and Copenhagen, Norwegian has something to offer on both sides of the Atlantic for cost-conscious travellers,” says Norwegian Chief Commercial Officer Thomas Amdahl.
So..summer is hot, but Norwegian obviously isn’t sweating the USDOT delay on NorwegianUK’s and NAI’s permits.
In fact, addressing the ongoing “flag of convenience claims” and helping to support the airline’s growth in the UK, Norwegian just opened brand new UK headquarters last week.
Located by London Gatwick Airport, which is the heart of the airline’s UK market, the offices will be home-base for key UK staff in flight operations, training, technical, safety and compliance, communications, marketing and sales.
“This is an exciting new milestone in Norwegian’s pursuit of substantial growth across the UK,” said Asgeir Nyseth, CEO at Norwegian UK. “Our new UK headquarters symbolises our commitment to this hugely important strategic market, and it allows us to grow steadily in an engaging work environment. That said, we intend to continue capturing the hearts of UK consumers through unmatched service, brand new aircraft and direct routes to the most exciting destinations – all at affordable fares.”
