The fledgling carrier has recently revealed plans for more flights to New York.
This new service, to be flown at daily frequency by its contingent of Boeing 787 Dreamliners, will join the airline’s existing links to the Big Apple gateway from London/Gatwick, Berlin/Brandenburg and Oslo/Gardermoen.
Flights are due to depart the French capital at 1945hrs, with a 2200hrs local time arrival into New York. The return leg takes off from JFK at 0030hrs, eventually landing back in Paris at 1405hrs local.
Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO Norse Atlantic Airways, commented: “We are very pleased to announce our new route connecting Paris and New York/JFK… The introduction of affordable Norse Atlantic Airways point-to-point flights between France and the United States, will benefit both local tourism and businesses. Not only are we directly investing in the countries that we operate by employing local staff but also supporting job creation across the wider tourism and service industry.”
This development comes not long after US-based JetBlue Airways recently revealed its own plans to serve Paris/Charles De Gaulle, initially from New York/JFK – which is planned to launch next summer using Airbus A321LRs. However, Norse and JetBlue already compete with each other on the Gatwick to JFK route.
