Norwegian is the little low-cost airline that’s taking the fight right to the transatlantic legacy carriers….except that the airline isn’t really little any more. Norwegian is now a serious force to be reckoned with and its transatlantic ambitions show no signs of going away.

Back in July the airline announced that it would be starting up routes to Chicago and Austin from London and to Boston and Oakland from Paris CDG. It also announced that it would increase frequencies on its Paris CDG to Los Angeles and New York JFK routes…..but things don’t appear to be stopping there.

In its latest schedule update Norwegian is increasing the frequencies on some of the routes it plans to start in 2018 as well as increasing the number of flights on a few existing routes.

Norwegian’s Frequency Increases

London Gatwick – Chicago

This route is scheduled to launch on 25 March 2018 and was set to be operated 4x/week but, in the latest schedule update, Norwegian has increased this to a daily service.

DY7151 LGW 10:00 – 12:35 ORD (Daily)
DY7152 ORD 15:15 – 05:00+1 day LGW (Daily)

The extra flights (on Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays) are not yet bookable on Norwegian’s website and it’s not clear whether this is a seasonal increase (for summer) or if this what we can expect year round.

London Gatwick – Los Angeles

This is one of Norwegian’s most popular US routes out of London so, starting on 30 March 2018, the airline has scheduled an increase in service from 7 to 9 flights per week.

DY7093 LGW 07:20 – 10:40 LAX (Fri & Sun) **New**
DY7093 LGW 13:10 – 16:30 LAX 789 (Tue & Wed)
DY7095 LGW 14:10 – 17:30 LAX 789 (Mon, Thu, Fri, Sat & Sun)

DY7094 LAX 12:40 – 07:00+1 day LGW (Fri & Sun) **New**
DY7094 LAX 18:30 – 13:00+1 day LGW 789 (Tue)
DY7094 LAX 18:45 – 13:15+1 day LGW 789 (Wed)
DY7096 LAX 19:30 – 14:00+1 day LGW (Mon, Thu, Fri, Sat & Sun)

As with the increased frequencies between Gatwick and Chicago these new flights to/from LA aren’t yet bookable but that should change in the coming days.

Edinburgh – Providence/Boston-TF Green (PVD)

Ok, I confess that I had to look up where Providence airport is and it turns out it’s in Rhode Island, southwest of Boston and a little over an hour’s drive from Boston’s Logan airport.

I had no idea that Norwegian operates flights here but, apparently, as things stand there is a 4x/week service from Edinburgh.

From 25 March 2018 this will increase to 6x/week.

Shannon – Stewart Newburgh

You can chalk this up as another route I hadn’t head about and another airport that I’ve definitely never visited.

Stewart International Airport is approximately 90 minutes drive from the centre of Manhattan (in good traffic) and is currently served by 2 Norwegian flights per week out of Ireland’s Shannon airport.

From 25 March 2018 Norwegian will be adding an additional weekly flight (taking the frequencies up to 3).
