Norwegian has announced new routes between Scandinavia and Los Angeles (LAX), Oakland-San Francisco (OAK) and Orlando (MCO) in spring 2014, to be operated with Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
At the same time Norwegian announced a new route between New York JFK and Copenhagen.
“I’m very happy to announce the launch of three new intercontinental destinations. The major traffic streams currently go between the US and Europe and there’s great demand for high quality flights at a low fare between the two continents,” said Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos.
No other airlines offer non-stop flights from Oslo to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Orlando; from Stockholm to Los Angeles and San Francisco or from Copenhagen to Los Angeles.
Norwegian currently operates six weekly flights between Scandinavia and New York as well as five weekly flights between Scandinavia and Bangkok. In November, the airline will commence flights from Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen to Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Chronologically, the new services begin with Copenhagen–New York, twice a week from 28 February 2014. The following day, 1 March, sees the start of the twice-weekly Copenhagen– Los Angeles service.
Then, from Stockholm, flights to Los Angeles and San Francisco, each twice a week, begin on 2 March and 3 March 2014 respectively.
On 28 May 2014, the Oslo–San Francisco thrice weekly service begins, followed a day later by the twice-weekly Oslo–Orlando service and then the weekly Oslo–Los Angeles flight from from 1 June.
