Norwegian announces new direct flights to Miami, San Francisco, and Rio de Janeiro

Norwegian today announces new strategic updates to its Summer 2019 route network that include new options to Miami, San Francisco, and Rio de Janeiro. The carrier will feature 13 long-haul routes next Summer, including the brand-new route between the UK and Brazil.

Starting March 31, 2019, Norwegian will serve Miami International Airport (MIA) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO) from London’s Gatwick, replacing its existing flights to Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Oakland (OAK) airports, from $225.00 (£174.90) one way.

The airline will operate daily flights to Miami, up from four-weekly services to Fort Lauderdale last summer and five-weekly services to San Francisco. Norwegian will have 32 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft in its fleet by the end of 2018 which are operated on its long-haul routes. Norwegian serves more destinations in the USA nonstop from Gatwick Airport than any other airline.

Also starting March 31, 2019, Norwegian will commence a new four-weekly service to Rio de Janeiro–Galeão International Airport (GIG) from London Gatwick Airport. Flights will operate on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday using Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft with fares starting at $306.00 (£239) one way.

“We are delighted to meet the strong demand for our transatlantic flights by announcing that Miami and San Francisco will join Rio de Janeiro as part of our summer 2019 flight schedule,” said Matthew Wood, SVP Commercial

Norwegian will continue operating its increased services from London Gatwick to New York JFK with three-daily flights and a daily service to Buenos Aires in Summer 2019. The airline’s newly launched twice-weekly Tampa route will also feature alongside nonstop flights to Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Orlando and Seattle.

These new Miami and San Francisco routes will fly passengers straight into the heart of two of America’s most iconic city destinations. In all, Norwegian will fly to 11 US destinations from Gatwick next summer, which gives passengers both tremendous choice and exceptional value as the airline offers some of the most competitive long-haul airfares around,” said Stephen King, Head of Airline Relations; Gatwick Airport.

Small frequency reductions will apply to two routes that will free up Boeing 787 Dreamliner capacity, in light of industry-wide mandatory inspections of a specific Rolls Royce engine type. The Los Angeles route will reduce to a daily service and the Chicago route will reduce to four flights per week.
