Norwegian Air announces another U.S. route

Norwegian Air plans to launch nonstop service between Las Vegas and London’s Gatwick airport, the carrier announced Monday.

The route would give fast-growing Norwegian its fourth route out of Las Vegas. The low-cost carrier already flies to its bases in Stockholm and Copenhagen. Las Vegas-Oslo flights are set to begin in November.

But the Gatwick flights will test whether there’s enough demand for a third carrier to fly between Las Vegas and London. Virgin Atlantic already offers daily round-trip service from Las Vegas to London Gatwick. British Airways flies daily between Las Vegas and its hub at London Heathrow.

Norwegian would fly two flights a week on the route using 291-seat Boeing 787 Dreamliners. The service starts Oct. 31.
