Low fare carrier Norwegian Air will launch more transatlantic routes to the US and the Caribbean later this year.
The third largest low cost airline in Europe, after Ryanair and Easyjet, will start new long-haul flights to Las Vegas, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport will get its first direct link with Scandinavia with weekly flights from both Copenhagen and Stockholm beginning October 31.
“Increasing accessibility to Las Vegas will introduce the city to millions of potential new visitors,” said Cathy Tull, senior vice president of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
“We are thrilled that this new partnership with Norwegian Airlines will connect Las Vegas directly to Sweden and Denmark for the first time.”
Beginning November 1, Norwegian will also start flying to San Juan, Puerto Rico with weekly flights from Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo, and two departures a week from London Gatwick.
New direct weekly flights are also planned each Friday to St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands from Oslo starting November 9.
Norwegian said it will increase frequency to daily departures on the London Gatwick-New York JFK route in the fall.
