Norwegian to offer almost 300 routes in 2012

By March 2012, 80% of the fleet will be WiFi-equipped

With the announcement this week that it will launch 34 new routes from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden from March 2012 to destinations throughout Europe, it’s clear that Norwegian is continuing its expansion in the Nordic region. As well as launching new routes with the onset of the summer schedule, the low-cost carrier is also adding capacity to 40 of its most in-demand routes, particularly to destinations around the Mediterranean.
Norwegian says that the new services mean it will offer 297 routes connecting its bases in the Nordics with destinations in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. By the time the new routes start, 80% of the fleet will be WiFi-equipped. New routes include Bratislava, Kiev, Reykjavik from Oslo; Corfu, Krakow and Riga from Stockholm; London Gatwick from Gothenburg; Marseille, Milan and Riga from Copenhagen; and Berlin from Aalborg.
