Norwegian Announces Flights from Paris CDG to Three US Cities

Europe’s third-largest low-cost airline, Norwegian, has announced the launch of new long-haul operations from Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle Airport. From 29th July 2016, Norwegian will begin its first operations from Paris CDG to New York, Los Angeles and Fort Lauderdale/Miami.

The schedules are:

New York JFK

Start date: 29th July

Four times weekly: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday

Fares from €179 one-way

Los Angeles

Start date: 30th July

Twice weekly: Tuesday and Saturday

Fares from €179 one-way

Fort Lauderdale/Miami

Start date: 4th August

Weekly: Thursday

Norwegian already operates short-haul flights from Paris Orly Airport to European destinations: Oslo, Bergen, Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Helsinki.

Norwegian will offer over 212,000 long-haul seats in its first full year of operations at Paris Charles-de-Gaulle. The flights will be served by Norwegian’s new fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners, with a capacity of 291 seats — 32 seats in Premium class and 259 in Economy class.

With an average fleet age of just 3.6 years, Norwegian has one of the youngest and greenest fleets in the world. The Dreamliner produces 20% fewer emissions than comparable aircraft and in 2015 Norwegian was named the most fuel-efficient airline on transatlantic routes by the International Council on Clean Transportation. Norwegian currently operates a fleet of eight Dreamliners, which will increase to 38 by the year 2020.

Bjorn Kjos, Norwegian’s founder and Chief Executive, said: “In less than three years since the launch of our long-haul operations, Norwegian has built a network of 38 non-stop routes between Europe and the USA — more than any other European airline. We already provide non-stop services from London, Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm.

“The choice of Paris as our fifth European long-haul capital clearly underlines our commitment to France. Paris is one of Europe”s main gateways, and we see great potential to expand at Charles-de-Gaulle Airport in the future, adding more long-haul routes as well as more frequencies.”
