Norwegian has announced plans to launch a weekly nonstop route from Orlando to Paris on July 31, 2017. In addition to this new route, the airline will increase frequencies on all existing routes. Beginning the last week of July 2017, service between New York and Paris will operate daily; service from Los Angeles will operate four times per week; and service from Fort Lauderdale will operate twice per week.
“The Paris routes have been outperforming our expectations since we launched the service this past summer,” said Bjørn Kjos, Norwegian’s CEO and founder, in a written statement. “Paris will be a major focus for us as we grow our service from the U.S.”
Fares for the new Orlando-Paris service will start at $229 one way, including taxes.
In July, Paris became Norwegian’s sixth European city with nonstop flights from the U.S. The airline will also launch nonstop service to Barcelona from four American cities next summer: Los Angeles, launching on June 5, 2017; New York City (Newark Liberty International Airport), launching on June 6, 2017; Oakland/San Francisco, launching on June 7, 2017; and Fort Lauderdale, launching on August 22, 2017. Additionally, Norwegian will launch service from Fort Lauderdale to Guadeloupe on December 17, and nonstop service from Oakland/San Francisco to Copenhagen on March 28, 2017.
Norwegian operates all of its long-haul flights on Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, offering both a Premium Cabin and Economy.
