Norwegian, one of the largest low cost
airlines in Europe, will launch flights from Paris Charles de
Gaulle Airport to New York JFK on 29 July 2016.
The airline will also
launch flights from Paris to Los Angeles on 30 July, and to Fort
Lauderdale/Miami on 4 August 2016.
The flights to New York JFK will operate four times weekly,
every Monday, Wednesday,
Friday, and Sunday with fares from €179 one-way.
Angeles flights will operate twice weekly, every Tuesday and
Saturday, with fares from €179 one-way, while the Fort
Lauderdale/Miami flights will operate every Thursday with fares from €199 one-way.
The flights will be served by Norwegian’s
brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliners, with a capacity of 291 seats -
32 in Premium Class and 259 in Economy Class.
Norwegian currently operates a fleet
of eight Dreamliners, which will grow to 38 by the year 2020.
Bjorn Kjos, Norwegian’s Founder
and CEO said, “In less than three years since the launch of our
long-haul operations, Norwegian has built a network of 38 nonstop
routes between Europe and the U.S. — more than any other European airline. We already provide nonstop services from London,
Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm. The choice of Paris as our fifth European long-haul capital clearly underlines our commitment to
France. Paris is one of Europe’s main gateways, and we see great
potential to expand at Charles-de-Gaulle Airport in the future,
adding more long-haul routes as well as more frequencies.”
