Airline Norse Atlantic to fly Gatwick-JFK from August

This post was originally published on this site

Round-trip fares for journeys between London’s Gatwick and the John F. Kennedy International Airport will start at 255 pounds ($322), including taxes, with the first flight scheduled for Aug. 12, the airline said.

Norse Atlantic will offer a daily service, with other U.S. destinations to be announced soon, it added.

The airline, which has its maiden flight scheduled for Oslo-New York on June 14, hopes to succeed where Norwegian Air failed, offering transatlantic flights at budget rates after securing cheap leases during the pandemic.

It operates a fleet of 15 Boeing (NYSE:BA) 787 Dreamliners, although with four of the aircraft currently on sub-lease to Spain’s Air Europa.
