Miami has become Norse Atlantic Airways‘ sixth US destination with the introduction of flights from London Gatwick. During the busiest winter months, the four-weekly service will grow to five, with return rates starting at £420 including taxes. The airline had first started service between Gatwick and Fort Lauderdale, but it changed to Miami International Airport since it is bigger and closer to the city’s central business district and South Beach. Additionally, a brand-new direct service will run twice weekly between Oslo and Miami, with return tickets starting at NOK 5,530 inclusive of taxes.
Norse Atlantic Airways’ CEO and founder, Bjrn Tore Larsen, said:
“We are happy to announce that we are now operating directly to Miami from Oslo and London, and we anticipate expanding our services to include Paris and Berlin in December. We are dedicated to offering our guests a comfortable and affordable service on board our contemporary Boeing 787 Dreamliners because Miami has always been a popular travel destination.
Director and CEO of Miami International Airport Ralph Cutié continued:
“We are delighted that Norse Atlantic has selected Miami International Airport as the departure point for all of its flights to South Florida, giving us their eighth U.S. destination. “We are pleased to welcome their service to Miami-Dade County on the previously unserved London Gatwick and Oslo routes.”
Flights from London Gatwick to New York, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Orlando are already offered by Norse Atlantic Airways.
