Norse Atlantic Airways has completed the full launch of its summer schedule in February and is reported to be on track to turn a profit at the end of 2023.
The company’s full summer schedule will feature six new destinations from London Gatwick to the US, bringing the total number of routes served to seven. These destinations are Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Washington D.C., Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, which join the already established New York route.
From New York JFK, the airline will serve five European destinations this summer, including Rome, Paris, Berlin, Oslo and London. In total, Norse Atlantic will operate 13 routes between Europe and the US this summer.
The month of February marked a milestone for Norse Atlantic Airways as record ticket sales combined with a focus on ancillaries led to the most successful month in the company’s history.
“We are very pleased to now be able to offer customers our full summer flight schedule. Demand since launch has been very encouraging, and we expect a busy summer season.
“In February, Norse Atlantic broke multiple revenue, ticket sales and website visit records, and we are seeing strong booking volumes across our network for the summer period, with flights to and from London to the US proving to be particularly popular during the peak months,” said Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO of Norse Atlantic Airways.
The airline is now shifting its focus from summer to winter planning and is set to announce its winter schedule – with sun destinations – at the end of March.
Norse Atlantic Airways operates exclusively Boeing 787 Dreamliners, and in February, carried a total of 32,970 passengers.
