BOSTON (August 18, 2015) – Norwegian, voted the world’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline for the past three consecutive years by SkyTrax, announced it is launching direct service from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to Copenhagen, Denmark (CPH) and Oslo, Norway (OSL), beginning May 2016. Last month the airline also announced it would start nonstop service to London’s Gatwick Airport (LGW) in May 2016. Flights to Oslo will be twice weekly and to Copenhagen once weekly.
With the addition of these flights, Norwegian now offers the cheapest one way fares to Europe, starting at $215 to Oslo, $229 to Copenhagen and $299 to London, which are now available for purchase at norwegian.com. Additionally, travelers can seamlessly connect to a number of other destinations across Europe through each of these cities.
“Boston is an important market for Norwegian, and these new routes show our commitment to the U.S., where we will continue to grow our presence by offering high-quality service on brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliners at the lowest fares,” said Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos. “We are excited to offer Bostonians even more European destinations from this east coast gateway at affordable fares without discounting on service, which so many Americans have been enjoying since Norwegian launched its transatlantic service two years ago.”
“Norwegian offers more international destinations than any other foreign carrier operating here,’’ said Massport CEO Thomas P. Glynn. “We welcome their growth, their array of destinations, and that they offer budget-conscious travelers a great way to get to and from Europe.’’
Earlier this summer, Norwegian also announced flights from Boston the French Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, which will commence on December 3, 2015, with twice weekly service to both destinations from Logan Airport. Norwegian will offer a total of five routes from Boston, more than any other non-U.S. airline, equal to the airline’s position at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).
Norwegian operates one of the world’s most modern and eco-friendly fleets and these new routes between Boston and Europe will be served by the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The airline currently operates eight Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners and will start taking delivery of the larger Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners in 2016.
By next summer, Norwegian will offer 34 nonstop routes from the U.S. to London and Scandinavia, providing more European routes than any other European airline, as well as direct service to the French Caribbean. Future service will commence from Las Vegas on October 31, 2015; San Juan, Puerto Rico, on November 1, 2015; and St. Croix, U.S. V.I., on November 5, 2015. Additionally, Norwegian will begin service from Boston, Baltimore-Washington D.C. and New York City to both the Guadeloupe Islands’ Pointe-à-Pitre InternationalAirport (PTP) and to Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport (FDF) on December 3, 2015. Norwegian has two crew bases in the U.S., one at JFK and one in Fort Lauderdale.
