Norse has partnered with Easyjet, Norwegian and Spirit airlines to provide over 600 weekly connections across European and US hubs.
The virtual interline agreement will enable customers to connect to Norse’s transatlantic services at its hubs in Oslo, London, Berlin, New York, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Los Angeles.
It said that the partnership with Easyjet will provide customers access to European destinations that connect with Norse’s services from London Gatwick to New York JFK (when they launch in August), and from Berlin to both New York JFK and Los Angeles.
Its partnership with Norwegian will enable customers to book flights from Oslo to domestic, Scandinavian and European destinations with connections onto Norse’s services to New York JFK, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles and Orlando.
Passengers will also be able to access further destinations in the US thanks to a partnership with Spirit Airlines. Destinations such as Las Vegas, Dallas, Nashville and Salt Lake City will be accessible from Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Los Angeles.
Customers can book connecting flights with Norwegian and Spirit Airlines at connections.flynorse.com, powered by technology partner Dohop, while those flying from the UK and Europe can also book on worldwide.easyjet.com.
Easyjet launched a similar service in 2017:
Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO Norse Atlantic Airways, commented:
“Since the launch of Norse Atlantic Airways we have made long haul transatlantic travel available to all thanks to our affordable fares and exciting destinations.
“Customers can now explore further and connect onto the services of our partner airlines across Europe and the U.S. These agreements will further boost transatlantic travel which will benefit local tourism and businesses on both sides of the Atlantic.”
Norse says that it is in discussions with other airline partners and will announce further agreements “in due course”.
Sarah Hanan, Commercial Director at Dohop, added:
“We’re thrilled to have a new, innovative, and forward-thinking transatlantic carrier such as Norse Atlantic Airways among our platform hosts.
“This new platform will enable Norse Atlantic Airways to easily build new partnerships with airlines across the world, facilitate growth and new commercial opportunities, and offer complex itineraries across Europe and North America to their passengers.”
Norse stated that the partnerships will “not impact Norse’s punctuality” and that it will not hold flights for connecting passengers. Those that miss connecting flights can be transferred onto the next available flight by Dohop.
