New exotic direct routes from Nordic airports

Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo to get Norwegian routes
Norwegian says it will expand its long-haul routes later this year by launching flights to Las Vegas, Puerto Rico and Saint Croix in the US Virgin Islands. The routes will take off from Scandinavia and London.
The third-biggest low-cost carrier in Europe (after Ryanair and EasyJet) has been breaking new ground by reaching into the long-haul business, including London-New York, one of the most competitive routes in the world.
Now Norwegian will launch direct flights to San Juan on the island of Puerto Rico from Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen and London Gatwick. Stockholm and Copenhagen will also get direct flights to Las Vegas. And from Copenhagen there will be a new route to the Caribbean island of St Croix in the US Virgin Islands.
Ryanair, meanwhile, announced yesterday that it would add routes to Alicante, Malaga and Budapest.
