Stewart Wingate, CEO, Gatwick Airport said: “We are delighted to welcome Norse Atlantic’s much-anticipated new service to Gatwick Airport. North America is a key market for us, with New York continually among our most popular destinations. We currently operate 40 long-haul routes across the USA, Canada, Caribbean, Africa, Middle East and Asia, so it’s great news for our passengers – as well as businesses across the region – that we are able to add another fantastic long-haul carrier to our operation, increasing choice and competition. We look forward to seeing Norse expand its transatlantic offer even further over coming months, alongside its connections to Oslo.”
