    Default Norwegian To Fly From Heathrow in 2020

    This from Travel Mole today, suggesting Norwegian may shift at least some of their London-Orlando routes to Heathrow from Gatwick next year:

    Norwegian to fly from Heathrow next year

    Budget carrier Norwegian Air has been granted six slots at Heathrow for next summer.

    It's believed the airline will use the slots on transatlantic routes, with Orlando tipped to be one of the destinations, although Norwegian has not yet commented on where the Heathrow services could fly to.

    A spokesman said: "We can confirm that the airline has been granted six slots, three take off and three landing, at London Heathrow.

    "We have a strong track record of disrupting incumbent carriers and alliances by offering low fares and award-winning service on specific routes and destinations that were previously operated as monopolies.

    "Our strategy benefits both consumers and businesses boosting local economies and employment.

    "We continuously adjust our network in response to demand and we will announce any further changes as and when it is appropriate to do so."

    Last week, Norwegian announced it was ending some long-haul routes from Scandinavia to the US and Thailand. The announcement followed news it had signed an interline partnership with US budget carrier JetBlue for next summer.

    In October, the airline revealed revenue rose for the seventh month in a row and was up 6% year-on-year.

    Its new CEO, Jacob Schram, is due to start on January 1.

    I saw this as well, it could be a big plus for those folk who fly out of London if Orlando is one of the routes.

    Here's hoping, but it'll probably be New York or L.A. where they can directly compete with the main carriers.
    5 Trips to Florida, Christmas in LA, Disneyland Paris twice and odd days here and there.

    All my trip reports are now HERE.

    It's certainly going to be interesting to see. Do they really want to go head-to-head with the big boys on their busiest routes, or do they want to take them on in less competitive areas? Glad I don't have to make that decision!
