Norwegian Air is believed to be planning to launch new flights from London to Rio de Janeiro next spring to replace its budget service to Singapore, which will be axed in January.
The airline confirmed today that its last flight from Gatwick to Singapore will be on January 10 and the last flight back will leave on January 11.
This has led to speculation that the airline is about to announce a new route from London to Rio de Janeiro, as it has already made clear that it is keen to expand in South America where fares are higher.
Norwegian started flying between London and Singapore only a year ago, offering the first and only budget flights on the route.
It entered the South American market in February with flights between Gatwick and Buenos Aires.
A Norwegian spokesman said today: “We continually evaluate our global network to ensure that we operate routes in response to customer demand. We have taken the decision to no longer operate our Gatwick to Singapore service from 12th January 2019 and use this capacity elsewhere on our network. Customers who have booked to fly after this period will be offered alternative options to reach their destination or a full refund.”
