Norwegian is expanding its long-haul network by launching its first long-haul low-cost route from Amsterdam to New York in May 2018.
A Boeing 787 Dreamliner will take off four times a week from Amsterdam to The Big Apple. This is Norwegian’s first long-haul service from Amsterdam. The airline already operates direct flights to Copenhagen, Helsinki, Oslo and Stockholm from Amsterdam Schiphol airport.
“2017 has been a year of exponential growth for Norwegian’s long-haul route network. This new direct flight to New York will make the US much more affordable and easier to reach for Dutch travelers. We are not slowing down our quest to provide passengers with low fares and a high-quality onboard experience. Passengers have enjoyed our service so much that Norwegian was one of the world’s most awarded airlines in 2017,” said Bjørn Kjos, Norwegian’s CEO.
Norwegian now offers 61 nonstop transatlantic routes from 13 European cities (London, Rome, Paris, Barcelona, Edinburg, Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Shannon, Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm and Bergen)
Norwegian operates one of the world’s youngest fleets, and the new route will be operated by brand-new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
Economy launch fares to New York City start as low as 199€ one-way, including taxes. The lowest fares in Norwegian’s Premium Cabin to New York City start at 539€, one-way including taxes. Premium service includes a dedicated check-in counter, additional luggage allowance, fast track security, lounge access, priority boarding, sleeper seats, all meals and drinks.
Passengers on all of Norwegian’s routes are eligible to join Norwegian Reward, the airline’s loyalty program and can earn CashPoints every time they fly, stay at a hotel or rent a car.
