Hello and welcome to London Air Travel’s Atlantic Update providing a weekly bulletin on developments on transatlantic travel between Europe and North America. The Atlantic Update is published every Wednesday morning at 06:00 GMT.

Norwegian Cuts London Gatwick – Las Vegas

Norwegian celebrated five years of long-haul operations at Gatwick last week.

However, the period of rapacious growth has clearly come to an end. Norwegian has confirmed it has suspended London Gatwick – Las Vegas. The route launched in 2016 and switched to winter seasonal last year.

Austin, Chicago and Seattle are suspended for the winter from Sunday 27 October 2019. As per last year, Austin is currently scheduled to resume from late March 2020. At present, there are no flights available for Chicago and Seattle for summer 2020.

Severe Weather Forecasts

Severe weather is forecast for the North East region today and a number of airlines including Delta and KLM have issued weather waivers.

The National Hurricane Center is also reporting a high probability of a tropical cyclone in the Gulf of Mexico this week.

On a related note, the Los Angeles Times reports on the impact of rising sea levels in California.
