Norwegian launches four-day sale celebrating five years of long-haul

Norwegian today, July 4, launched four-day anniversary sale as it marks five years of low-cost long haul at London Gatwick.

The sale running up to July 8 is giving consumers the chance to book flights at 15% discount from Gatwick to all USA destinations, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro in economy and Premium.

Customers must enter campaign code: 5YEARS to apply the discount for travel between September 1, 2019 ? March 31, 2020, excluding the blackout period December 16, 2019 ? January 9, 2020.

The airline flies more than 1.5 million passengers each year to 11 US cities, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro.

Bjorn Kjos, CEO of the airline, said: ?We saw an opportunity five years ago to bring low-cost long-haul to London Gatwick and really make positive changes to the transatlantic market. Since then, many carriers have been forced to raise the bar and lower fares to compete with us which proves we have unlocked a viable market.

?Consumers today are now better off as we?ve given millions of people the opportunity to travel to the USA and beyond, while maintaining exceptional levels of quality and service on board modern aircraft that reduce our impact on the environment.

?I would like to thank Gatwick Airport and my dedicated colleagues for supporting the first five years of our long-haul growth and ensuring that Norwegian can continue to build on this solid foundation to make low-cost long-haul a success in the future.?

Stewart Wingate, CEO at Gatwick Airport, said: ?The five years since Norwegian launched its first transatlantic route from Gatwick have seen the airport experience a low-cost long-haul revolution. Spearheaded by Norwegian, the number of low-cost long-haul routes available from Gatwick has quadrupled since 2014, and the number of passengers travelling on these routes has grown by 43 per cent in the last year alone. Indeed, one in five of our passengers are now long-haul travellers.

?Making the world?s most exciting destinations accessible to more Gatwick passengers than ever before, and significantly boosting trade and tourism opportunities for our local area, have been some of the airport?s biggest successes in recent years. We?re looking forward to working with Norwegian and other carriers in the future to continue the meteoric growth in global connections that has made Gatwick such a vital piece of infrastructure for local communities and the UK as a whole.?
