New low-cost airline Norse Atlantic Airways will commence a daily service between London Gatwick and New York JFK in August, with tickets now on sale.
The first flight departing London Gatwick will take place on 12th August 2022, with fares starting from £255 return.
The daily service will depart from London at 13.00 and arrive in New York at 15.55 local time. The return flight departs New York at 17.55 and lands in London Gatwick at 06.20 local time the following day.
Throughout the summer Norse Atlantic will also operate flights between London Gatwick and Oslo, following a recent announcement of services between Oslo and several US destinations.
“We are very pleased to now be able to welcome customers looking to book great value flights between London Gatwick and New York JFK. Customers now have an affordable option allowing them to book a last-minute trip or a holiday of a lifetime with an airline that offers choice and flexibility,” said Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO of Norse Atlantic Airways.
The airline, which offers economy and premium cabins onboard its fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners, secured slots at Gatwick Airport in March.
Stewart Wingate, Gatwick Airport CEO, said: “It’s always great to see a new tail on the airfield but the arrival of a new airline following the turbulent past two years for the industry, and one that will be offering fantastic long-haul routes across the Atlantic, is particularly exciting news.”
The airline, which was set up in March 2021, plans to operate a 15-strong fleet serving destinations such as London, Oslo, Paris, New York and Florida, with more US destinations set to be announced soon. Norse Atlantic also featured in BTN Europe’s 2022 Hotlist.
