Norwegian announces new routes to Chicago and Austin

Norwegian has announced two new US routes from London Gatwick with flights now on sale to Chicago and Austin, Texas.

The new routes from London Gatwick to Chicago and Austin will start from March 2018 and will be served by new Boeing 787 aircraft.

Norwegian CEO Bjorn Kjos said: “Once again we have put the UK at the heart of our ambitious expansion plans, with affordable fares to another two exciting US destinations. As America’s third biggest city, Chicago is perfect addition to our growing networks while Austin has also become a major hub for leisure and business travel so we are delighted to offer passengers more choice and lower fares to these vibrant cities.

“Many people said low-cost long-haul would never work but three years, 13 routes and 1.5 million UK passengers later and Norwegian has shown there is huge demand for more affordable long-haul travel.”

Separately today, Norwegian also announced new routes from Paris to Boston and Oakland, as well as increased flights on the existing routes from Paris to New York and LA.
