From 29th October, Norwegian will begin offering two flights per week from Edinburgh to Tenerife.
The service will depart on Thursdays and Saturdays onboard a new Boeing 737 aircraft. On both days, the 737 will take off from Edinburgh at 15:30, arriving in Tenerife at 20:15.
Norwegian’s commercial director, Thomas Ramdahl, commented, “Norwegian’s combination of low-fare, high-quality flights has proved a hit with Scottish holidaymakers and we are pleased to introduce another year round route from Edinburgh Airport. Tenerife remains one of the most popular holiday getaways for Scottish travellers, and compliments the range of city breaks we currently offer to Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm.”
The new route means Norwegian will be adding around 40,000 seats between Scotland and Tenerife over the next year. The carrier already offers low-fare routes to Copenhagen, Malaga, Oslo and Stockholm from Edinburgh Airport, carrying over 150,000 passengers annually.
Passengers travelling from Edinburgh can also take advantage of Norwegian’s low-fare services to America as the result of a new service called ‘Gatwick Connects’. The booking system enables passengers to combine a low-fare flight from Edinburgh with Norwegian’s flights from Gatwick in a single transaction.
