Norse Atlantic launches new routes from Norway to US with fares starting at $129 one-way

Norse Atlantic Airways is launching new long-haul flights this summer, with fares starting at $129 one-way between Oslo, Norway, and several American destinations.

“As of June 14, Norse Atlantic Airways will begin providing direct service from Oslo Airport (OSL) to John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), with service from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), International Airport from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood (FLL) and Orlando International Airport (MCO) effective June 20. More routes are expected to be added soon.” the dots guy.

Norse plans to operate a fleet of 14 Boeing 787 Dreamliners, called “Longships”.

The JFK and Los Angeles routes also represent a change from the company’s initial route proposal. The original airports serving the New York and Los Angeles markets were Stewart/Newburgh (SWF) and Ontario (ONT), respectively.

The move to a larger airport is a result of accessing the necessary slots.

JFK flights, for example, depart at 11:55 pm, after the transatlantic race ends.

Los Angeles takes off at 6pm, which is late for a trip across the Atlantic from the West Coast. Flights from Oslo to Los Angeles will depart at 6:30 am, so the plane will be on the ground longer. This will likely depend on the number of slots available.

Travelers looking to save money on their summer plans should act quickly to take advantage of these “limited availability” discounts before they run out.

The startup promises entry-level fares starting at $129 one-way, though that price only includes a small laptop bag or backpack and no meals.

Flights are offered in two cabins with premium and economy sections. “Light”, “Classic” and “Plus” are the three price and service options available in both cabins.

Economy Light tickets only allow for compact under-seat luggage and there is a charge for carry-on luggage, flight changes and meals.

Economy Plus offers free seat selection, one checked bag, transferable tickets and priority boarding, in addition to Economy Classic, which includes free carry-on baggage and free meals.

Premium cabin passengers enjoy larger seats, 35% more legroom, two meals and free carry-on luggage.
