Norwegian Reward members flying from Heathrow can also benefit from discounted lounge access.
The new partnership also offers Norwegian Reward members 25 CashPoints when purchasing airport lounge access with No1, which can be used to reduce the cost of future flight bookings, seat reservation and checked baggage.
Norwegian’s Premium passengers on the airline’s award winning low-cost flights to the US automatically receive access to No1 lounge at Gatwick’s South Terminal before departing on brand new 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The lounge offers unrivalled panoramic runway views, a fully tended bar serving award-winning wines, beers and premium spirits, plus an exclusive menu of freshly prepared hot and cold dishes. Newspapers, glossy magazines and unlimited Wi-Fi are also complimentary.
Brede Huser, Vice President of Norwegian Reward said: “Our new partnership with No1 Lounges is significant for Norwegian Reward members who can now earn even more cost savings. We’re continuously giving more value to our customers and now we’ve made lounge access more affordable and accessible for cost-conscious travellers. With this in mind, our most loyal passengers can get their summer holidays off to a fantastic start in high-quality lounge facilities even before they step on to our brand new aircraft.”
Phil Cameron, CEO of No1 Lounges said: “We are delighted to be adding to the departure experience for Norwegian passengers – and to be offering greater value. We see innovation as key to our success, so it’s very exciting to be working with a like-minded airline such as Norwegian, which is continually striving to deliver the very best for its customers.”

There are currently 500,000 UK-based Norwegian Reward members earning rewards on all flights which can be used to boost CashPoints, gain free seat reservation, free fast-track or free baggage for a year.
