Norwegian has completed its inaugural flight from London Gatwick to Orlando International Airport (MCO) in Florida, marking the beginning of a once-weekly Saturday service between the two locations.“Norwegian already flies between Orlando and Oslo, and this is a very popular route both for Americans and Europeans. We’re therefore very happy to celebrate this new route between London and Orlando,” remarked Norwegian’s CCO, Thomas Ramdahl. “Earlier this week we also celebrated our very first flight between Copenhagen and Orlando. The travelling public deserves affordable fares and flexible tickets across the Atlantic.”Norwegian commenced its low-fare long-haul operation between Europe and the US in 2013, and expects by 2017 it will have a fleet of 17 Dreamliners (seven are currently in service with the carrier).
