Norwegian Air Shuttle to Open Gatwick Base

Norwegian Air Shuttle will open a new base of operations at Gatwick Airport in spring 2013. It will also establish a new base of operations at Alicante, Spain.

The airline will offer flights to several Mediterranean destinations and the Nordic region from London and believes that the new hub will also enable it to better meet competition from Asian and European carriers in the long-haul market.

Norwegian already a operates more than 100 weekly departures between the Nordic region and Gatwick which is the airline's most popular destination outside its home market. The Alicante base will add to already established bases at Malaga and Las Palmas and serve an important part of Norwegian’s Spanish traffic.

Norwegian is planning to start its operations at London Gatwick with three Boeing 737-800s and increase to four aircraft by the end of the year. The first flights will commence in spring 2013. Pilots and cabin crew will be recruited locally.

Norwegian currently has bases of operations in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Spain. A new base for the company’s subsidiary for long-haul flights is being established in Bangkok.
