Norwegian Air Shuttle continues its rapid expansion at London Gatwick with the launch of new direct flights to Las Vegas.
The airline will fly to Las Vegas twice weekly (Monday & Thursday) from Monday 31 October 2016.
This will be Norwegian’s 8th long-haul route from London Gatwick after New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco-Oakland, Boston, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Puerto Rico.
Norwegian will be competing against direct flights by Virgin Atlantic from London Gatwick and British Airways from London Heathrow.
On that note, the very rapid growth by Norwegian is not going unnoticed by either British Airways nor Virgin Atlantic. We have already seen British Airways reinstate its London Gatwick – New York JFK route as an apparent competitive response. We would not be surprised to see further activity by either airlines which both depend very heavily on transatlantic traffic for profitability.
Flights are on sale now at Norwegian.com and an initial scan of fares shows return trips being available for less than £399.
