Norwegian Airline Coming to Austin March 27, 2018

NorwegianNorwegian already plans to begin flying Austin – London Gatwick at the end of March, 2018. The airline is expanding rapidly, and in the last couple of days has announced four new additional routes to the U.S., bringing the total up to 61 trans-Atlantic routes. All these routes can be booked now on their website.

While Norwegian is considered to be a low-cost carrier, their routes from AUS to Gatwick don’t look so cheap compared to some of the sales we are now seeing from the major U.S. airlines. For example, the base round-trip fare from Austin to London, departing June 14 and returning June 28, costs $714. This “LowFare” does not include checked bag, drinks & meals, or seat selection…for those you need to add $90.

Of course, these are Norwegian’s standard fares, with lots of seat availability…not like the sales that some carriers run with just a few seats available.
