Florida is one of the key new destinations for the launch of the first low cost transatlantic flights from Gatwick.
Norwegian is the first airline to offer non-stop transatlantic flights from London at such a low cost. Next summer it will operate flights from Gatwick to New York, Los Angeles and Florida.
Flight start in July 2014 and fares will start from £149 one-way, including taxes and charges to JFK, New York, £199 one-way to Los Angeles, and £179 one way to Fort Lauderdale in Florida.
Gatwick welcomed the news and said that on average, fares would be up to 50% cheaper than flights from Heathrow.
Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos said: “There’s great demand for high quality flights at a low fare between the UK and the US, particularly to and from London Gatwick, where no other airline currently offers these routes. We are looking forward to welcoming many new customers on board our brand new aircraft. Launching intercontinental routes between London Gatwick and the United States is also an important part of our strategy to expand internationally and get a stronger foothold in markets outside Scandinavia.”
