Norwegian announced it will launch flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Barcelona, Spain, on June 5, 2017.
The nonstop flights to Spain will operate twice a week until the end of August 2017, when it will add a third weekly flight.
“Continued U.S. expansion is key to Norwegian’s global strategy, and we’re excited to offer affordable fares to even more nonstop European destinations so that travelers can enjoy our award-winning onboard service. We now offer a greater amount of nonstop routes from theU.S. to Europe than any other European airline, and we look forward to continue adding more routes and frequencies so that American travelers have even more choices,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s chief commercial officer.
“We congratulate Norwegian on the announcement to launch nonstop service to Barcelona that will provide Angelenos with more low-cost choices to Europe,” said Deborah Flint, Los Angeles World Airports chief executive officer.
“Barcelona is a new nonstop destination for LAX and the new service will strengthen business, tourism, and cultural ties with one of the most desirable regions in Europe while providing connecting service to additional destinations.”
In addition to LAX, Norwegian will also begin Barcelona service next June from Fort Lauderdale, New York
City/Newark, and Oakland.
Norwegian started operations at LAX in 2014 with nonstop service to Stockholm, Sweden – then quickly expanded service to Oslo, Norway; Copenhagen, Denmark; London-Gatwick; and most recently in July to Paris-Orly.
Barcelona is the seventh European city with nonstop service to the U.S. in Norwegian’s ever-growing route network. The carrier offers a total 44 routes from the U.S., 37 of which are to Europe and seven to the French Caribbean. Upcoming routes from the U.S. include Las Vegas to London launching on October 31; Las Vegas to Oslo launching on November 1; and Fort Lauderdale to Guadeloupe launching on December17.
