Norwegian has launched a new route from London Gatwick to Rio de Janeiro.

This is Norwegian’s second route from Gatwick to South America after Buenos Aires.

Norwegian will fly four times weekly on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sundays from Sunday 31 March 2019. Flights will be operated with the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

The route is effectively a replacement for London Gatwick – Singapore which ends on Thursday 28 March 2019.

Norwegian will be competing against British Airways, which is the only other airline to fly direct from London to Rio. Like BA, the outbound flight is a day flight from London.

Rio de Janeiro is a stunningly beautiful city to visit and it would take a heart of stone not to be seduced by it. Brazil does of course have well documented problems and a volatile political culture. However, this should not deter visitors. Rigid adherence to basic personal safety advice does go a very long way.
