Norwegian adds Chicago and Austin to US network

Norwegian Dreamliner 787

Norwegian has announced two new US routes from Gatwick, as it expands its low-cost long-haul services.

The airline will fly to Chicago with fares starting at £179 and Austin from £239.

Norwegian will start both routes in March 2018 – operating flights to Chicago four-times weekly and Austin three-times weekly.

Stewart Wingate, Gatwick CEO, said: “These new flights are yet more proof that the low cost long haul revolution is here to stay as Norwegian and Gatwick’s long haul networks reach into all four corners of the globe. Norwegian now offers 13 long-haul routes from Gatwick to destinations across the US and also to South America and south east Asia.

“The addition of new flights to Chicago and Austin also means that Gatwick’s long haul network breaks yet another world record as we now offer 62 long haul routes – more than any other single runway airport in the world - and the fifth largest network of any airport in Europe.”

Norwegian recently celebrated its third anniversary since it first launched low-cost long-haul from Gatwick.
