Press release -
Easing of travel restrictions makes Scandinavia the perfect autumn and winter destination thanks to Norwegian
Following the recent government announcement to allow fully vaccinated passengers travelling to England to replace day 2 PCR tests with cheaper lateral flow tests, from the end of October, and no longer need to take pre-departure tests, travel to Scandinavia this autumn and winter is now easier and even more affordable thanks to Norwegian.
Travellers wishing to reunite with friends and family or simply explore the wonders of the Nordics and magical sights such as the Northern Lights can now travel far more easily between the UK and Scandinavia. Passengers can choose from various ticket types to suit their travelling needs and free gate to gate WiFi is available on all flights.
Norwegian appreciates that circumstances can change and are currently offering one rebooking without fees on all flights. This is a limited offer valid for LowFare and LowFare+ tickets on all flights. Conditions are subject to change and the conditions published at the time of booking will apply.
“We have seen a surge in interest on Norwegian.com for travel to our popular Scandinavian winter destinations in light of the recent UK Government announcement of the easing of testing requirements for fully vaccinated passengers. We look forward to welcoming onboard both new and frequent travellers wishing to visit the Nordics with Norwegian.” Said Philip Allport, Director of International Communications at Norwegian.
