Passengers can choose from a range of fares, Light, Classic and Plus, that reflect the way that they want to travel, and which options are important to them. Light fares represent Norse’s value option while Plus fares include the maximum baggage allowance, two meal services an enhanced airport and onboard experience and increased ticket flexibility.

Interestingly, considering that Norse Atlantic Airways is a “low-cost carrier”, it’s good to see that the airline will offer Inflight entertainment screens and USB charger and power outlets at every seat, regardless of the class of travel.

We are very pleased to now be able to welcome customers looking to book great value flights between London Gatwick and New York JFK. Customers now have an affordable option allowing them to book a last-minute trip or a holiday of a lifetime with an airline that offers choice and flexibility.

He continued:

The introduction of affordable Norse Atlantic Airways point-to point flights between Europe and the United States, will benefit both local tourism and businesses. Not only are we directly investing in the countries that we operate by employing local staff but also supporting job creation across the wider tourism and service industry.

Stewart Wingate, CEO, Gatwick Airport, said:

We are delighted to welcome Norse Atlantic Airways to Gatwick. It’s always great to see a new tail on the airfield but the arrival of a new airline following the turbulent past two years for the industry, and one that will be offering fantastic long-haul routes across the Atlantic, is particularly exciting news. Passengers across London and the South East will now be able to benefit from another transatlantic service from Gatwick, with Norse offering excellent value for money for those flying out for a dream holiday, or important business trip, to New York, one of the world’s most famous and dynamic cities.

Temporarily from August and throughout the summer, Norse Atlantic will also operate flights between London Gatwick Airport and Oslo Airport. This is probably due to the positioning of aircraft from Oslo to London in order to operate London-New York flights. The airline will offer connections from London to Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Los Angeles via Oslo.
