Norwegian launched its latest nonstop flights out of the United States this week. The new routes fly from Los Angeles, Newark and Oakland to Barcelona, Spain. Later this summer, the airline will add service from Fort Lauderdale to Barcelona, and this fall, Norwegian will fly nonstop service from Los Angeles, New York City/Newark and Oakland/San Francisco to Rome.
In a written release, Norwegian's CCO, Thomas Ramdahl, said, "“Barcelona is one of the key destinations within our global route network and we have seen such strong demand among Americans for this new route. Barcelona is now our sixth nonstop European destination out of the U.S. and over the next few months we will launch another seven nonstop destinations across Europe, making it even more affordable for Americans to travel across the Atlantic."
Service from Los Angeles International Airport to Barcelona-El Prat Airport launched June 5, and operates twice weekly until the end of August, when it becomes a thrice weekly service. Service from Newark Liberty International Airport to Barcelona launched June 6, with a twice weekly service until the end of August, when it will operate four times per week. Flights from Oakland International Airport to Barcelona launch June 7, and will initially operate twice weekly until the end of August, from when it will operate three times per week. Flights from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to Barcelona will launch on August 22, 2017, and operate twice weekly.
Norwegian operates one of the world’s youngest fleets comprised of brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliners, the aircraft type used on the Barcelona routes. All Dreamliner flights include both a Premium and an Economy cabin. Passengers on all of Norwegian’s routes are eligible to join Norwegian Reward, the airline’s frequent flyer program and can earn CashPoints every time they fly, stay at a hotel or drive a rental car.
