Norwegian launches new route to Greece from London Gatwick

Norwegian has announced plans to launch a new non-stop service from London Gatwick to Aktion Airport, which serves Preveza and Lefkada, Greece for summer.

The new service will be Norwegians’ first flight to mainland Greece from the UK and adds to the airlines’ existing Greek services to Rhodes, Kefalonia, Santorini and Crete. With the new service, travellers have direct access to more remote regions of Preveza and Lefkada. The traditional Greek towns boast a relaxing atmosphere and pristine beaches.

Norwegians’ first flight to Aktion Airport will depart on May 3, 2020 with a twice weekly service on a Thursday and Sunday for the summer season until October 1. Fares start from £60.50 per person, one-way available at www.norwegian.com/uk.

Magnus Maursund, SVP commercial Short Haul at Norwegian, said; ‘We are pleased to offer Brits more choice and flexibility when flying with Norwegian across Europe this summer by adding capacity to key services and a new route to Aktion Airport. Passengers travelling with us can enjoy our complimentary gate-to-gate Wi-Fi while flying in a high-quality and comfortable cabin onboard our modern, environmentally friendly aircraft.’

In addition to the new service, Norwegian is also expanding capacity on key European routes for this summer with extra weekly flights to Greece and Norway. The airline has added a second weekly flight to Crete, a new morning departure five days a week to Stavanger and extended the winter service to Tromso with two weekly flights in April, May, September and October.

Norwegian carries almost six million UK passengers each year from London Gatwick, Edinburgh and Manchester Airports to 30 destinations worldwide. The airline was ranked the most fuel-efficient airline on transatlantic routes by The International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) for two consecutive years.
