Norwegian will station three Boeing 737-800s in Milwaukee and Chicago to operate routes to Mexico and the Caribbean to December 2016 to April 2017.

The total value of the contracts is around 120 MNOK (£10 million) ams include more than 600 flights.

For Norwegian, it is a big milestone to enter the US charter tours market and utilizing capacity in the European low season.

Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer at Norwegian said: “We are very excited to expand our charter operations to the United States and partner with Apple Vacations and Funjet Vacations. We look forward to having more Americans enjoy the Norwegian experience on their way to what will hopefully be a fantastic holiday.”

Norwegian has since December 2015 offered its own flights from several U.S. East Coast cities to the French Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique. The seasonal winter service will resume this autumn.
