Norwegian Air UK announces first long-haul route, to Asia

Before the winter season this year, Norwegian will launch their very first route to Singapore from London Gatwick. It will be their second route overall in southeast Asia, with Bangkok being served from the three Scandinavian capitals already.

The flights will commence on September 28, operating four times a week and increasing to five later in winter. 

The route will be operated with their 787-9. It will be their UK subsidiaries first route flown with the DI airline code. The airline recently announced flights to Seattle and Denver, also starting later this year.

Norwegian CEO Bjorn Kjos said: “Our transatlantic flights have shown the huge demand for affordable long-haul travel, so we are delighted to expand into new markets and offer our first route to Asia from the UK.

“Travel should be affordable for all so adding Singapore to our growing UK network will give passengers even more choice for affordable, quality travel to a range of global destinations.

“The UK is at the heart of Norwegian’s ambitious plans for growth so it is a significant moment not only to launch this exciting new route, but also for it to be the first long-haul route to take to the skies with our new ‘UK’ subsidiary.”
