Norwegian continues to expand is long-haul operation by launching a new route between Copenhagen and Bangkok.
Norwegian launches yet another long-haul route. On 30th October, Norwegian-passengers can fly non-stop between Copenhagen and Bangkok. The new route will operate twice per week. Norwegian already offers direct routes between Bangkok and Oslo and Stockholm.
The new long-haul route is part of Norwegian’s global strategy:
“For too long, the long-haul market has been dominated by high fares and restricted flexibility. We believe that everyone should afford to fly, also long-haul,” says Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos.
