Norse Atlantic Airways To Begin Las Vegas Flights

Norse Atlantic Airways has announced that starting in September, it will launch service from London to Las Vegas with its Boeing 787.

Norse Atlantic Airways has announced plans to expand its route network, with service commencing from London Gatwick to Las Vegas in the United States.

The first flight is scheduled to commence on 12 September 2024. Customers will be offered a thrice-weekly service in a two-class Boeing 787.

The low-cost unit offers an economy and a premium economy cabin, and current fares start at £399 and £1029, respectively. Norse, a low-cost airline, makes much ticket money through add-ons such as baggage, meals, seating, and almost every other element.

Norse Atlantic has also unveiled the flight number for the service, set to be number Z0777, including the lucky number 7.

Las Vegas has seen a massive boom in tourism and marque events in recent years, and airlines have responded by launching flights or boosting existing services.

The new route, commencing in September, targets business and leisure travellers. Norse believes the connection from the United Kingdom can offer better connectivity between the two countries.

An Ever Changing Route Network

Norse Atlantic launched in 2022 with service from Oslo to New York after being founded in 2021. Since its conception, the airline has looked to serve critical destinations worldwide with low fares.

However, this business model has hardly been easy to maintain at the best of times, and while solid summers will occur, the long winters have proved tricky to navigate.

Over the past almost two years, Norse Atlantic’s route network has dramatically changed with each passing season as the airline has attempted to find ways to adapt to the ever-evolving market.

Notably, this has included serving new locations such as Bangkok and cities in the Caribbean during the colder months in Europe, with warm-weather travel that is hoped to be more enticing.

Adding Las Vegas to the network in time for the end of summer is seen as another enhancement of its U.S. network. It will complement the multiple destinations across the country.

Comments From Executives

We are excited to introduce this new route from London Gatwick to Las Vegas, a unique city that offers unparalleled diversity, boasting an abundance of entertainment, dining, and recreational options to suit every taste. For those seeking breathtaking natural landscapes, including nearby national parks such as the Grand Canyon, Red Rock Canyon, and Valley of Fire State Park, this destination is also an explorer’s paradise.

 Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO and Founder Norse Atlantic Airways.

We are delighted to see Norse Atlantic’s continued growth at London Gatwick, providing more flights and choice for passengers across London and the Southeast. Las Vegas is a popular leisure route and it’s fantastic to see direct flights return from September for the winter season, complementing existing summer services from London Gatwick. Passengers can now fly from London Gatwick to more than 50 long-haul destinations, including multiple locations across the USA, including New York and Florida.

A 787 Fleet

Norse Atlantic Airways also operates with a fleet of only Boeing 787 Dreamliners. While the airline firmly denies being a 2.0 of Norwegian, the airline was birthed following the Norwegian decision to axe the 787 and subsequent international flights.

Operations with the Dreamliner are viewed as essential in making Norse efficient, modern, and environmentally friendly, and its product at the price point has been praised.

Additionally, when boarding Norse services from specific locations, the demographic difference becomes evident, from solo travellers to business travellers to families, with its low price point being an attractive way for passengers to travel.
