Three million low-cost long-haul passengers

Norwegian flies three million between Europe and US
Norwegian says it has flown more than three million low-cost long-haul passengers between Europe and the US, since its transatlantic services began in 2013.
The 3,000,000th long-haul passenger, Naresh Airody, was greeted by members of the JFK-LGW crew and posed for the cameras.
Norwegian first launched low-cost flights from Scandinavia to the US in May 2013, followed by services from London beginning in July 2014. Today, it offers 37 nonstop routes between the US and Europe “with a steady load factor of 90% or more”.
The carrier says that “the low-cost long-haul model has proved particularly popular in the UK where Norwegian remains the only airline offering British passengers direct, low-cost flights to America”.
Next month, Las Vegas becomes the eighth US destination served from London Gatwick.
The airline says that with its UK license it “has the long-term ambition” of using the same aircraft to fly to further US destinations “and other long-haul routes to potential new markets such as Asia, Africa and South America”.
