Norwegian adding US – Caribbean flights
Norwegian will introduce flights from the USA to Caribbean destinations this winter, expanding its Boeing 737 services away from Europe for the first time.
The airline, which offers Europe – USA long haul flights using its 787 Dreamliners, will now add flights from Boston Logan, New York JFK and Baltimore/Washington to Guadeloupe and Martinique.
All of the flights will be flown by Boeing 737-800 aircraft using its European crews.
Flights commence on 3 December, and make use of Open Skies treaties because of the French ownership of the two Caribbean islands.
Norwegian has stated that this will make good use of the slower Winter schedule in Europe, where carriers such as Ryanair often park aircraft for extended periods.
