Norwegian to fly to Fort Lauderdale

News Thursday, 14 March 2013 11:32 Written by  Oliver Clark

Scandinavian low-cost carrier Norwegian has announced a new route to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, its second US destination after it revealed plans to operate to New York.

A new twice weekly service will operate from Copenhagen from November 29 and twice weekly from Stockholm from December 1, both routes will be operated by a B787 Dreamliner baring any continued technical problems.

 

“Long-haul flying has for way too long been characterized by expensive fares and limited flexibility. The great reception Norwegian has received after launching low-fare tickets to New York and Bangkok shows that there is a need for competitive fares from Scandinavia to the US and Asia,” said Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos.

 

“Our entry into the long-haul market continues and we are pleased to launch Fort Lauderdale, Florida, as a new Norwegian route from Copenhagen and Stockholm. At the same time, we launch ticket sales for the winter season to New York and Bangkok from Oslo and Stockholm,” he added.

 

Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is Norwegian's first long-haul route from Copenhagen and the third from Stockholm. Fort Lauderdale is known as "The Gateway to Florida" and is centrally located about half an hour's drive north of Miami. Popular destinations such as Orlando, the Everglades and Key West are easily accessible by car. Several cruises originate in Fort Lauderdale. The routes to New York and Bangkok from Oslo and Stockholm will start in May /June.

 

Fort Lauderdale is only Norwegian’s third announced B787 route after New York and Bangkok. As previously reported in the international press, Thai crew will operate all flights.

 

Norwegian currently has eight Dreamliners, but has no secret of the fact that it is looking at extending those orders and increasing frequencies. A spokesperson for Norwegian said the carrier was looking closely at other US and Asian destinations.

 

According to OAG Analyzer data, the routes are currently uncontested.
