Gatwick Airport has secured a seven year deal with Norwegian to settle more new routes in the future.
The new commercial deal will build on the airline’s new base from the UK airport, from which a series of routes into Europe and the USA have been announced.
These include flights from Gatwick to New York, LA and Fort Lauderdale using a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
The agreement comes after the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) endorsed Gatwick’s approach to work more with airlines to negotiate commercial terms.
“Norwegian is delighted to have agreed a long term commercial partnership with London Gatwick. As one of the fastest growing airlines at the airport, Norwegian will continue offering our passengers at Gatwick an increasing route network and a high quality product at reasonable fares,” said Bjorn Kjos, CEO of Norwegian. “We are particularly excited about the potential to serve long haul routes, and we have already announced the first three routes from London Gatwick to the US.”
