Norwegian is continuing the expansion of its low-cost long-haul network by launching a new direct route to the bright lights of Las Vegas from London Gatwick.
The twice weekly flights will launch from London Gatwick on October 31st, on the airline’s brand new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft which feature two cabins – premium and economy.
The service will depart Gatwick for Las Vegas International Airport on a Monday and Thursday – perfect for a weekend break in the City of Lights.
Norwegian chief commercial officer Thomas Ramdahl said: “Las Vegas is a fantastic addition to our growing transatlantic network from the UK – viva low-cost, viva Las Vegas!
“Norwegian is bringing more competition to the UK market, which is win-win for the customers by creating more choice and affordable fares for all.
“We will continue to provide Brits with low-cost and easier access to more parts of the US, while offering a high-quality service in the newest aircraft.
“We look forward to adding Las Vegas to our network from London Gatwick.”
Norwegian is the only airline to offer UK passengers direct low-cost flights to the US and Caribbean.
Las Vegas will become Norwegian’s eighth US route, with flights currently operating from London Gatwick to New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco-Oakland, Boston, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Puerto Rico.
Norwegian has put on sale a record 425,000 transatlantic seats from Gatwick this summer as the airline continues to introduce brand new larger Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft that offer 344 seats.
