More of the locations that start-up airline Norse Atlantic intends to serve from Gatwick have been made public. Fort Lauderdale and Orlando are also expected to be confirmed as initial destinations by Norse, which will start operating flights from Gatwick to New York JFK on 12th August.
San Francisco, Baltimore/Washington, and Chicago’s Rockford Airport, which is 85 miles outside the city, will come following these “short after.”
Services to California’s Ontario Airport, some 40 miles from Los Angeles, will begin “after facilities for handling international freight become available,” according to a filing made with the US Department of Transportation by Norse.
Norse will operate flights to the main LAX airport from Berlin and Oslo, but it’s believed that due to increased competition, Ontario was picked as a less expensive alternative for its UK trips.
To run these services, Norse Atlantic UK, a UK company, is being established. The Norwegian airline stated that it was forced to make this decision “because to the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union.”
It added: “Norse Atlantic UK anticipates beginning US operations in late 2022 with eight Boeing 787-9 aircraft in a two-cabin configuration (economy and premium) and a seating capacity of 338 passengers.
“Norse Atlantic UK has applied for an Air Operator Certificate from the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which it expects to receive in the next few weeks.”
The Gatwick-New York flights will start in Oslo up till it acquires the UK license.
