Norwegian celebrated the first anniversary of its ground-breaking low-cost, long-haul flights between the UK and America today – by announcing a new route to Boston and confirming that summer 2015 is set to be a record breaker for the airline.
Starting 25 October, Norwegian will link Madrid with daily flights to Gran Canaria and Tenerife North, whereas Barcelona will be served to Gran Canaria, Tenerife North and Fuerteventura, and Malaga to Gran Canaria and Tenerife South, with fares starting for as little as €39.50 one-way, taxes included.
Norwegian reports a continued passenger growth and a record-high load factor of 88 percent for the month of June. The positive trend is a combination of solid growth on the long-haul operation and many sun-seeking Scandinavians during June.
Norwegian will launch flights from Boston, Baltimore/Washington, D.C. and New York City to two Caribbean destinations: the Guadeloupe Islands and Martinique. Only two years after launching its long-haul operation, Norwegian will now be the largest foreign airline at New York’s JFK airport in terms of number of routes. The airline currently offers 31 direct routes from the US.
Norwegian, UNICEF and Amadeus extend their long-term cooperation with a global agreement. The new agreement enables Norwegian’s passenger to donate funds to UNICEF’s work for children all over the world when purchasing their flights online.
