Norwegian Airlines Announces Direct Flights from Tampa to London

Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline Will Start with Twice Weekly Service


Norwegian, the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and Airline of the Year 2017, announced today it will add Tampa International Airport to its ever-growing United States route network. Twice weekly service to London Gatwick will launch on October 31, 2018, and operate Wednesdays and Saturdays. Launch fares will start as low as $214.90 one-way in Economy, and from $604.90 in Premium, both fares including taxes.

Norwegian already operates more routes between Florida and Europe than any other airline, and passengers now have 14 route options from three airports across the Sunshine State to Barcelona, Copenhagen, London, Madrid, Oslo, Paris, Rome and Stockholm. Additionally, Norwegian offers seasonal service from Fort Lauderdale to the French Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique.

Norwegian operates one of the world’s youngest fleets, and the new route will be operated by a brand-new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, offering a Premium and Economy cabin. Premium includes a dedicated check-in counter, fast track security, lounge access at selected airports, large and wide recliner seats with more legroom than any airline’s premium economy, all meals and drinks, as well additional checked-in luggage and CashPoints.

“We are excited to introduce another U.S. destination to our network. Tampa Bay will be a very popular destination amongst European traveler. Similarly, Europe is in high demand among Tampa Bay and Florida resident. With our growing commitment to Florida, we’re also increasing our Fort Lauderdale and Orlando to London services for the winter season due to the great demand,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer.
