Norwegian to launch flights from US to Caribbean

Airline now has Guadeloupe Islands and Martinique in its sights
Norwegian will launch flights from Boston, Baltimore/Washington DC and New York to two destinations in the Caribbean, the Guadeloupe Islands and Martinique. The new seasonal service to the French West Indies will launch on December 3.
There will be three flights a week from JFK to the Guadeloupe Islands’ Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and from JFK to Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
The airline says the decision means that two years after launching its long-haul operation, Norwegian will be the largest foreign airline at New York’s JFK airport in terms of number of routes.
Norwegian stresses that the new routes will give passengers from Europe “a golden opportunity to combine a city break in New York with an exotic Caribbean vacation”. It already offers direct flights from London and the Scandinavian capitals to the Caribbean islands of Puerto Rico and St Croix, in addition to other destinations in the US. It currently offers 31 direct routes from the US.
Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos said: “We will continue to expand in the US, by launching new routes and establishing more US bases.”
