Norse Atlantic has announced four new routes across the Atlantic from London Gatwick.
This brings the total routes served from the UK arport by the Norwegian carrier to seven.
The new routes will bolster its low-cost offering on routes linking the UK to North America. They include:
- Boston Logan (Starts 2 September 2023)
- Los Angeles International (Starts 30 June 2023)
- San Francisco International (Starts 1 July 2023)
- Washington Dulles (Starts 1 June 2023)

🇺🇸Washington Dulles – begins 1 June 2023 – 6x weekly flights (4x weekly from September)
🇺🇸Los Angeles – 30 June – 7x weekly

In addition, Norse Atlantic flies to Fort Lauderdale, New York JFK and Orlando International from Gatwick.
Until recently the airline also had a daily link from Gatwick to Oslo, however this has been discontinued as its purpose of allowing the airline to offer tickets from the UK airport is no longer necessary as they now have their own UK Air Operator’s Certificate.
Here’s a video I took when I flew their service from Oslo to Gatwick last year.
The airline said: “This marks an important day for the UK aviation industry and for consumers as we celebrate serving more destinations to the US from London Gatwick this summer than any other airline. The addition of direct flights to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and Boston to our already popular New York, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale/Miami services will provide greater choice and value for consumers.”
A Growing Airline
Much of Norse Atlantic’s operation mirrors the former Norwegian Air long-haul services, even down to using the same Boeing 787 aircraft in a new livery.
Like Norwegian, Norse Atlantic is operating from a number of bases like Oslo, Gatwick and Berlin Brandenburg, and hopes to add Paris Charles de Gaulle and Rome Fiumicino to its future European bases.
With its simple costs and onboard offering, the airline is a great way to find affordable tickets across the Atlantic compared to the full service airlines.
