Norwegian airlines have continued their rapid expansion plan, adding four new routes during the course of last week, including another transatlantic route, namely the addition of weekly (Tuesdays) departures from Copenhagen to Orlando.
The exciting news for Spain however is the new route connections to the UK, with flights from Madrid and Málaga to Birmingham International.
Thomas Ramdahl, CCO, Norwegian, said: “We’re very happy to celebrate the new routes from Birmingham to several destinations in Spain. Now travellers in the greater Birmingham area can take advantage of Norwegian’s low fares and award-winning service. Our crew is looking forward to welcoming new customers on board our brand new and more environmentally friendly fleet of 737-800s with free Wi-Fi.”
In addition, Ryanair are promoting their route from Alicante to Gdansk, and Berlin Schönefeld, Bratislavia, Bucharest and Vilnius to Madrid, Cologne Bonn to Barcelona, and Palma de Mallorca to Gothenburg.
Monarch Airlines increased its Leeds Bradford offering with the addition of two new routes, both of which are operated by its 180-seat A320s. On 29 March, the airline introduced thrice-weekly flights to Alicante, a route already operated by Jet2.com (daily) and Ryanair (five times weekly).
British Airways launched a London to Bilbao route last week too, flying on Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft, which feature improved cabins with extra space and a higher level of comfort on this new regular service.
