Press Release   •   Mar 09, 2016 10:26 GMT

Low-cost airline Norwegian has made it easier than ever for Brits to take off to the French Caribbean this winter with fares from £210 one way incl. taxes.

Norwegian’s popular flights from the U.S. to the French Caribbean return this winter and now for the first time, passengers in the UK can book flights from London Gatwick to the islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe in a single transaction.

By flying on Norwegian’s low-cost flights direct from London to New York and Boston, passengers can enjoy an overnight stay in the Big Apple or the hustle and bustle of Boston before taking off in the afternoon to the sun and sand of the French Caribbean.

Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer at Norwegian said: “We’re providing the UK’s most affordable link to the French Caribbean by making it easier for Brits to book. Our French Caribbean flights have been a winter favourite for Americans which is why they’re set to return this winter. We’re now taking it a step further by offering Brits affordable connections to the untapped corners of the Caribbean.”

From 10 November, Norwegian will operate three weekly flights from New York, and twice weekly flights from Boston to Guadeloupe and Martinique. Passengers can benefit from free inflight Wi-Fi on Norwegian’s brand new Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

The airline already flies nonstop from Gatwick to New York daily and will commence four weekly direct flights from Gatwick to Boston from 27 March serviced by state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

Norwegian has a record 425,000 low-cost seats between the UK and U.S. on sale this summer as the airline recently introduced its first larger Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner which offers 53 extra seats than its existing Dreamliners.

Norwegian first launched UK flights in 2003 and is Europe’s third largest low-cost airline. The carrier operates from London Gatwick, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Manchester Airports to 34 destinations worldwide.
