Norwegian launches new routes to Miami and San Francisco with fares from £174.90

Norwegian Air is launching direct flights to Miami and San Francisco, with some very tempting fares for budget-savvy travellers!

The airline has previously offered direct flights to airports right by both destinations – Fort Lauderdale for Miami, as well as Oakland for San Francisco, but now it’s shifting the routes to fly direct from London Gatwick to Miami International Airport and San Francisco International Airport.

The new routes kick off in summer 2019 but are already available to book on the Norwegian website, with fares currently on sale from £174.90 each way.

The airline will operate daily flights to Miami, up from the four-weekly services to Fort Lauderdale which it ran last summer.

As for San Francisco, there will be five-weekly services on offer for holidaymakers.

The airline says that it chose to change the airport destination because it "reflects customer demand and the increased cargo capabilities these airports offer Norwegian Cargo".

It already offers an impressive network of flights from London Gatwick direct to the USA including destinations such as Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Orlando and Seattle.

The new Miami and San Francisco routes announcement comes just days after Norwegian revealed that from 31st March 2019 it will be offering direct flights to Rio de Janeiro with prices starting from £240 each way.

Of course if you are after a deal, then you may want to bookmark Norwegian’s Christmas Countdown; the airline will be offering up 24 consecutive days of deals to celebrate the festive season in style!

Matthew Wood, SVP Commercial at Norwegian said of the new Miami and San Francisco routes: "We are delighted to meet the strong demand for our transatlantic flights by announcing that Miami and San Francisco will join Rio de Janeiro as part of our summer 2019 flight schedule.

"By also increasing frequency on popular routes next summer, we will provide customers with more choice, smoother connections and exceptional value at affordable fares across Europe, the USA and South America."
