The airline Norwegian has expanded its winter Florida programme, adding more flights on existing Fort Lauderdale and Orlando routes as well as introducing a brand-new twice-weekly Tampa service.
In addition, the carrier has announced its Buenos Aires service will become daily, in response to passenger demand, while its Las Vegas and Boston services have also been expanded.
Norwegian’s new Tampa service will operate out of Gatwick from October 31, with one-way prices from £175.
Its Fort Lauderdale service will increase from three flights a week to daily, while its Orlando service has been increased from three to four flights a week. One-way prices start at £175 in economy and £515 in premium.
In response to strong demand for the airline’s Gatwick-Buenos Aires route, services will increase from four flights a week to a daily service. Lowest one-way fares are now available from £315 in economy and £640 in premium.
Norwegian’s Vegas service has been boosted by an extra flight and will now operate three times a week, from £195 one-way, while Boston will increase from five flights a week to daily, from £155 one-way.
Gatwick Airport chief financial officer Guy Stephenson said: “Norwegian’s new Tampa service, a new daily schedule for the existing Buenos Aires and Boston routes and increases to other services, all give our passengers yet more choice and flexibility.
“This choice, combined with the airline’s competitive prices and high quality service, are appreciated by both our business and leisure passengers and are an important reason for Norwegian’s success at Gatwick.”
Norwegian’s long-haul flights from London Gatwick are operated by brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft offering up to 344 seats in a two-class configuration.
A new extended premium cabin has been introduced, with a 56-seat cabin configuration.
Other network changes this winter include a recently announced third daily service to JFK, with London Gatwick to Chicago reducing to four weekly flights from a daily service, Oakland (San Francisco) reducing to three weekly flights from four per week and Austin and Seattle becoming seasonal routes from October 28.
