Norwegian Launches New route from Oslo to Fort Lauderdale

Norwegian has launched Fort Lauderdale, Florida, as a new destination from Oslo. This is the airline’s third long-haul destination from Oslo Gardermoen (OSL), making Norwegian the largest operator of direct long-haul routes from Norway’s main airport.

“Long-haul flying has too long been characterized by high fares and restricted flexibility. The great reception Norwegian has received after launching low-fare tickets to New York and Bangkok shows that there is a need for competitive fares from Scandinavia to the U.S. and Asia,” said CEO Bjørn Kjos.

“We’re planning several new direct long-haul routes, enabling not only Scandinavians to experience the entire world, but also giving foreign visitors easy and affordable access to the Nordic region,” Kjos said.

Norwegian launched Bangkok and New York in November 2012; in addition the company flies to Dubai during the winter season.

Oslo – Fort Lauderdale twice a week

Norwegian will operate two weekly flights between Oslo Gardermoen (OSL) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) - on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Departure from OSL is at 15:10, arriving FLL at 19:30 local time.

Departure from FLL is on Mondays and Fridays at 21:30, arriving at OSL at 12:35 the following day. The inaugural flight is on November 30.

Good connections

In addition to the direct routes from OSL to Fort Lauderdale, Bangkok and New York, Norwegian operates direct routes to Fort Lauderdale from Stockholm and Copenhagen and to New York and Bangkok from Stockholm. The company has a total of six weekly flights from Scandinavia to New York, Bangkok and Fort Lauderdale.
