OSLO (Reuters) – Budget airliner Norwegian Air <NWC.OL> will introduce direct flights to Miami and San Francisco from London Gatwick as part of its summer 2019 long-haul programme, it said on Wednesday.
The flights to the two U.S. cities, costing from 174.90 pounds one way, will start on March 31 and replace its existing flights to Fort Lauderdale and Oakland airports.
Norwegian Air will operate daily flights to Miami, up from four services a week to Fort Lauderdale last summer, and five a week to San Francisco.
“The change in airport destination reflects customer demand and the increased cargo capabilities these airports offer Norwegian Cargo,” Norwegian Air said.
