Norwegian Air Shuttle continue their rapid expansion with the addition of several new routes this winter. 
On November 1st, Norwegian will launch flights between London-Gatwick and Reykjavík-Keflavík. The flight will be flown three times a week, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, joining their year-round service to Oslo and seasonal service to Bergen from Keflavík. 

Norwegian will also introduce new flights between the UK and Lapland’s capital, Rovaniemi. The flights will be operated twice-weekly, om Mondays and Fridays.

New frequencies will be added on flights from London to Lanzarote, Tenerife Tromsø and Grenoble, which will bring an increase of 25,000 additional seats. 1 additional weekly departure will be added on flights to Lanzarote and Tenerife, Tromsø will increase to 3 weekly and flights to Grenoble will operate twice a week.

Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer at Norwegian said: “We are committed to offering low-fares with choice and flexibly for our passengers. Both Reykjavik and Rovaniemi are fantastic additions to our growing UK route network, which now serves more than 50 destinations nonstop. The addition of these new routes and extra capacity to some of our most popular winter destinations will make this our busiest winter at London Gatwick. Our affordable fares start from £29.90, so we expect Brits to flock to the Icelandic island and Lapland this winter with the added bonus of free Wi-Fi on board.”

Gatwick Airport CEO Stewart Wingate said: “Norwegian is one of Europe’s fastest growing airlines and we welcome their continued expansion at Gatwick. These latest new routes show Norwegian providing new low cost services to destinations people want to fly to. I expect these routes will be as successful as Norwegian’s others, including their ground-breaking low cost long-haul routes to the US. I look forward to continued close working with Norwegian on what looks like being their busiest year at Gatwick yet.”

Norwegian will also be adding flights from Manchester to Gran Canaria and Tenerife later this year.
