Norwegian to fly direct low-cost flights to Bangkok

Norwegian is launching a new route between Copenhagen and Bangkok.

The new direct route, which launches on October 30th, will operate twice a week.

Norwegian already offers direct routes between Bangkok and Oslo and Stockholm.

The new long-haul route is part of Norwegian’s global strategy.

“For too long, the long-haul market has been dominated by high fares and restricted flexibility.

“We believe that everyone should afford to fly, also long-haul,” said Norwegian chief executive Bjørn Kjos.

In 2013 Norwegian commenced its long-haul operation by becoming the only low-cost carrier to offer flights between Europe and the US.

Norwegian will have a fleet of 17 Dreamliners, whereof seven are currently in service and one more will be delivered in 2014.

The company is planning to expand its long-haul fleet with even more 787 Dreamliners.
