Low-cost airline Norwegian has put on sale an increased number of low-cost flights from Edinburgh this summer including the return of its newest route to Barcelona.
Norwegian is placing the Scottish capital at the centre of its rapid UK growth and ahead of planned transatlantic flights to the USA to be announced in the coming weeks, the airline is also expanding its summer programme on select routes to Scandinavia and Spain.
Customers travelling from Edinburgh Airport now have more affordable choices to fly direct to some of Europe’s most popular destinations with 10 additional flight departures per week from the end of March.
Norwegian’s summer 2017 increases at Edinburgh Airport:
- From 26 March, getting to Copenhagen is now easier with six Norwegian flights per week departing the Scottish capital for the Danish capital, up from the current two per week.
- From 26 March, Norwegian will double the number of weekly flights to Oslo with six per week.
- From 28 March, Stockholm becomes more accessible with a third weekly service operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
- From 29 March, Norwegian’s popular newest route to Barcelona returns with a twice-weekly service on Wednesdays and Saturdays
Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer at Norwegian said:
“Norwegian’s expanded summer program is just the start of our big plans at Edinburgh this year. Our increased number of flights to Europe will soon be complemented by new groundbreaking transatlantic flights offering customers a more affordable way to visit the USA. While we finalise our transatlantic plans, we’ve put on sale more low-cost flights so that cost-conscious families and businesspeople can access top European destinations at great value.”
Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said:
“Norwegian is a great business fit at Edinburgh Airport. We share similar international aspirations and are both committed to offering enhanced passenger experience and greater choice.
“The expanding Scandinavian market is valuable for Scotland’s tourism sector and the economy at large, and we look forward to welcoming even more of our friends from Norway, Denmark and Sweden to Scotland.
“Edinburgh and Barcelona already have a strong association with one another and this service further improves links between the two cities.”
Norwegian serves six business and leisure destinations direct from Edinburgh including twice-weekly services to Tenerife and Malaga. All flights are serviced by modern aircraft each offering up to 189 seats and free in-flight Wi-Fi for all passengers.
Europe’s third largest low-cost airline is also creating more than 130 jobs in Scotland ahead of its continued expansion at Edinburgh Airport in 2017. The airline will confirm its plans for new transatlantic routes at truly affordable fares in the coming weeks.
