Norwegian Air Shuttle is launching its 14th new direct route from its new base at London Gatwick. Starting May 25th, the airline will fly once a week, on Saturdays, from London Gatwick to the popular Spanish island of Ibiza.
In April, Norwegian is establishing a new base of operations at London’s Gatwick Airport. The airline is offering flights to several popular Mediterranean destinations such as Malaga, Alicante, Nice and Barcelona.
Norwegian is already a significant player at London Gatwick. With more than 100 weekly departures between the Nordic region and London, the British capitol is Norwegian’s most popular destination outside its home market. The airline sees a major passenger potential in London and surrounding areas.
Norwegian will start its operations at London Gatwick with three Boeing 737-800s and is planning to increase to four aircraft by the end of the year. The first flights will commence in spring 2013.
Fares start at £29,90 one way including taxes.
