NEW YORK (FEBRUARY 18, 2015) – Norwegian, the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline, will launch flights from three United States airports to Paris’ Charles De Gaulle Airport on July 29. Service will commence with four weekly flights from New York’s JFK International Airport, two weekly flights from Los Angeles International Airport and one weekly flight from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. This will be Norwegian’s first operation from Charles De Gaulle Airport. The airline currently operates flights from Paris Orly International Airport to five Scandinavian destinations.
In less than three years since the launch of its U.S. operations, Norwegian now has more nonstop routes from the U.S. to Europe than any other European airline. The airline already provides nonstop service to London, Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm, as well as seasonal service to Bergen. In total, Norwegian offers 38 routes from the U.S.
“Launching our fifth major European nonstop destination from the U.S. clearly underlines our commitment to the American market. Paris is one the most visited cities in the world, attracting both business and leisure travelers alike all-year round. We see great potential and demand for our transatlantic service and we will continue to offer customers more direct flights and more affordable fares from additional cities both in the U.S. and Europe,” said Bjørn Kjos, Norwegian’s CEO and founder.
Flights to Paris are now available for purchase at Norwegian.com/us, with introductory fares starting as low as $175 one-way, including taxes. For the lowest available fares to any Norwegian destination, check the Low Fare Calendar.
“It’s always great news to hear about new service to France. We think it demonstrates a confidence that American demand for travel to France will be strong again this year, and that the market can expand and support additional service. This confidence reflects well on our destination,” said Anne-Laure Tuncer, Director USA at Atout France, France Tourism Development Agency.
All Paris flights will be operated on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, one of the world’s most modern and eco-friendly fleets. Last year, Norwegian was named the Most Fuel-Efficient Airline on Transatlantic Routes by the International Council on Clean Transportation.
