Norse Gatwick flights – launch info revealed

The latest transatlantic challenger airline has confirmed when it will start flying from London.

Norse Atlantic Airways – not to be confused with Norwegian – will begin flights from Gatwick to New York/JFK this August.

The Nordic newcomer had been expected to launch services this spring, but delayed the start of its revenue operations citing market weakness, highlighting the war in Ukraine as a factor which has “resulted in increased fuel prices and uncertainties relating to travel demand”.

The first flight from Gatwick to the Big Apple will depart on August 12 and is due to operate with a daily frequency.

Timings are as follows (all local):

Depart LGW: 1300hrs

Arrival JFK: 1555hrs

Depart JFK: 1755hrs

Arrival LGW: 0620hrs (+1)

Norse will operate an all-Dreamliner fleet with both -8 and -9 variants

The Nordic carrier’s London inaugural follows news that its first revenue flight will depart Oslo/Gardermoen for New York/JFK on June 14, with a trio of other US destinations being rolled out over the course of summer season.

Promotional prices start at £225 return, although it should be noted that this is the most stripped back fare and does not include checked luggage, meals, seat selection or other ‘frills’.
