Norwegian launches Oslo-Fort Lauderdale

CEO: “We’re planning several direct long-haul routes”

Fort Lauderdale in Florida has been launched as a new destination from Oslo. This is Norwegian’s third long-haul destination from Oslo Gardermoen, making it the biggest operator of direct long-haul routes from Norway’s main airport. The route will be operated twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The inaugural flight is on November 30.
Norwegian launched Bangkok and New York in November 2012. The company also flies to Dubai during the winter season.
“Long-haul flying has too long been characterised by high fares and restricted flexibility,” said the airline’s CEO, Bjørn Kjos. “We’re planning several new direct long-haul routes, enabling not only Scandinavians to experience the entire world, but also giving foreign visitors easy and affordable access to the Nordic region.”
