Norse Atlantic Airways Launches Cheap Fares to Europe
Start-up budget airline Norse Atlantic Airways celebrated its first flight from Oslo to New York JFK on June 14. The schedule will ramp up to daily flights from July 4, with one-way fares starting from around $100.
Norse Atlantic also opened ticket sales for direct flights between Berlin, Germany, and the United States on www.flynorse.com.
Flights will operate daily from Berlin direct to New York (JFK) from 17th August with fares starting from an unprecedented €160 and $120 one-way. The airline will also serve Berlin direct to Los Angeles three times a week from 19th August with fares starting from as low as €189 and $138 one-way. One way starting fares include all surcharges and taxes and are subject to availability.
Norse Atlantic is a new budget airline that offers affordable fares on long-haul flights, primarily between Europe and the United States. The company was founded by CEO and major shareholder Bjørn Tore Larsen in March 2021.
Norse has a fleet of 15 modern, fuel-efficient and more environmentally friendly Boeing 787 Dreamliners that will serve destinations including New York, Los Angeles, Florida, Paris, London, Berlin and Oslo, among others.
The airline offers two cabin choices, Economy and Premium, on its B787 Dreamliner aircraft, the latter of which features a 43-inch seat pitch and 12-inch recline. There are three fare options, Light, Classic and Plus. Light fares represent Norse’s value option while Plus fares include the maximum baggage allowance, two meal services an enhanced airport and onboard experience and increased ticket flexibility.
“We are very excited to announce these two new routes from Berlin to New York and Los Angeles. For far too long the vibrant and culturally diverse city of Berlin has been subjected to poor direct transatlantic connectivity. Our extremely competitive fares and direct flights will allow customers to now finally enjoy affordable and convenient travel between Germany and the US.
“The introduction of affordable Norse Atlantic Airways point-to point flights between Germany and the United States, will benefit both local tourism and businesses by supporting job creation across the wider tourism and service industries,” continued Bjorn Tore Larsen.
