Norwegian to double flights between London Gatwick and Gothenburg this winter
Low cost airline Norwegian is continuing its growth at London Gatwick by doubling the volume of flights on offer to Gothenburg this winter.
The airline currently offers six flights per week to the Swedish city, and will increase to 12 per week from 25 October. The new flights are on sale now at www.norwegian.co.uk with fares starting from £29.90.
The additional flights will be operated by new, 186-seater Boeing 737-800 aircraft with free WiFi for passengers.
The additional Gothenburg seats will help make it more convenient and affordable for business travellers and those enjoying a city break on the west coast of Sweden. The country’s second largest city is famed for its coastline and vibrant events calendar including the 'Way Out West' festival.
Thomas Ramdahl, Commercial Director for Norwegian, said: "We are pleased to offer additional departures to Gothenburg with all the benefits of our low fares, quality service and free Wi-Fi so you can stay in touch, on the go."
Last week Norwegian was named "Europe’s best low cost airline" for the third consecutive year at the Skytrax Awards. The awards are one of the most comprehensive in the industry with votes cast by thousands of passengers who review all elements of the airline’s service.
