Norwegian to start Rome-US flights

Flights from Los Angeles, New York/Newark, Oakland/San Francisco
Norwegian says it will launch flights from Rome to three destinations in the United States from November – Los Angeles, New York/Newark and Oakland/San Francisco – with its new Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
Rome will be the budget airline’s seventh long-haul European destination served from the US following Barcelona, which will launch this June, as well as Paris, London, Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm.
The carrier will now be launching at least 25 new routes out of the US this year, including 12 transatlantic routes to be operated with a Boeing 737-MAX to Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Norway, as well as three new routes to the French Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, from Providence (Rhode Island) and Fort Lauderdale.
“Rome is one of the top tourist destinations in the world, and a favourite among Americans, so it was an obvious choice for us as we continue to expand our transatlantic presence,” explains Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s chief commercial officer.
“Soon Norwegian will offer more transatlantic routes than any other airline in the world. More transatlantic routes mean we will create more US and European jobs and offer travellers even more affordable fares.”
Services from Newark Liberty International Airport to Rome’s Leonardo Da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport will launch on November 9, four times a week until early February when it increases to six times a week.
Services from Los Angeles International Airport to Rome will launch on November 11, twice weekly until February, when it becomes a thrice weekly service. Flights from Oakland International Airport to Rome will launch on February 6, twice weekly.
