Norwegian is set to expand its long-haul route network once again, launching its ninth long-haul service out of Copenhagen. This time, the airline will launch a non-stop service to Boston on the US east coast. Norwegian already operates long-haul services between Copenhagen and New York, Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Bangkok. In November, the airline will also launch services to Las Vegas, St. Croix and Puerto Rico.
We are very pleased to launch yet another long-haul service. This is good news for Scandinavians and other Europeans wanting to travel comfortably and at low cost to Boston, and for Americans with a dream of travelling to Europe,” said Bjørn Kjos, CEO of Norwegian.
In July, Norwegian's long-haul flights were almost all full, the load factor being as high as 97%.
High on the list
“An increasing share of our passengers are Americans, showing that there is a demand in the market. With more non-stop routes between the continents, even more Americans will visit Europe and Scandinavia, which is positive for the economy and the tourism industry,” said Kjos.
Boston has long been very high on our list of potential destinations because there has never been a non-stop service between Copenhagen and Boston. In other words, Norwegian choosing Boston as its next long-haul destination out of Copenhagen is good news for Scandinavian travellers,” said Peter Krogsgaard, Chief Commercial Officer at Copenhagen Airports A/S.
Many combination options on the US east coast
The Boston service will be Norwegian's fourth US east coast destination. The airline already offers services to New York, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale. As Norwegian's one-way tickets allow travellers to fly to one destination and return from another, passengers can to a much greater extent plan and adjust their trips to match their needs and demands in step with the expansion of the airline's already large long-haul route network.
