Norwegian to fly seasonal service from New York to Athens and Chicago to Barcelona

Norwegian will introduce new nonstop service from New York to Athens and Chicago to Barcelona for the 2019 summer season.Service from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport to Barcelona-El Prat Airport begins June 7, 2019; and service from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Athens International Airport begins July 2, 2019. Both new routes will be summer seasonal until October 26, 2019.”Norwegian is fully committed to the United States and have answered our passengers’ growing demand for more destinations from both New York City and Chicago. Already serving most of Europe’s top destinations, Athens is an exciting addition to our transatlantic route network. Barcelona, which we added two and half years ago from the U.S, is performing so well that we are adding both a new route, from Chicago, and increasing frequencies from both New York City and Los Angeles,” said Matthew Wood, SVP of Commercial Long Haul and New Markets for Norwegian.

The new Athens service from New York JFK will operate four times a week. With Athens, Norwegian now offers 13 European nonstop destinations from the New York City area this summer.

The new Barcelona service from Chicago will operate four times per week. Additionally, Norwegian will increase the frequencies of its highly Barcelona route to daily service from Newark Liberty International Airport, while the Los Angeles to Barcelona service will increase to six flights weekly. In total, Norwegian now offers five nonstop routes to Barcelona from the United States: Chicago; Fort Lauderdale; New York City/Newark; Los Angeles; and Oakland/San Francisco.
