Norwegian has announced frequency increases on routes from Gatwick to four “key US destinations” next year.
From March 29, 2020 the carrier’s San Francisco service will increase from five flights per week to daily, while Austin and Denver will both increase from three to four weekly services, and Tampa from two to three flights per week.
Norwegian says that the increases will see over 75,000 extra seats being offered on “these specific routes” during the summer 2020 schedule.
But it’s not all good news, as the carrier will reduce frequencies on four other transatlantic routes from the same date.
Services from Gatwick to Buenos Aires and Orlando will both decrease to five times weekly, while flights to Miami will be reduced to six services per week, and the Gatwick-Rio route will decrease to three flights per week.
The news follows Norwegian’s decision to drop all transatlantic flights from Ireland, as well as the suspension of its route between Gatwick and Las Vegas.
Commenting on the changes Matthew Wood, SVP commercial at Norwegian said:
“In line with our business strategy of moving from growth to profitability we are ensuring that we concentrate on key routes across our network where we see strong demand.
“These frequency adjustments ensure that our customers can have more choice when choosing their flights to the US at fares that remain affordable to all.”
