Norwegian is to launch a new route from London Gatwick to Crete on 28 April, flying three times weekly direct flights to Chania Airport throughout the summer with 186-seat Boeing 737-800s featuring free Wi-Fi.
The airline has also increased the number of Gatwick flights to Corfu, Pula and Berlin this summer. Corfu and Pula will now be twice-weekly, while there will be 13 departures every week to Berlin.
Norwegian’s chief commercial officer Thomas Ramdahl commented, “We’re serious about offering more choice, flexibility and low-fares for our passengers. Crete is a fantastic addition to our growing UK route network which now serves more than 40 destinations nonstop. Travel patterns have changed and so Crete offers an attractive alternative for sun-seekers. We expect Brits to flock to the Greek island this summer with the added bonus of having free Wi-Fi on board our flights.”
Crete becomes Norwegian’s fifth new summer route following the carrier’s UK regional expansion with new flights from Manchester to Alicante, Malaga and Barcelona alongside a new route from Edinburgh to Barcelona starting in June.
