    Norwegians internationale satsning fortsætter – nu også med nye ruter mellem USA og Caribien. I vinterhalvåret vil selskabet flyve fra Boston, Baltimore/Washington og New York til de caribiske øer Guadeloupe og Martinique. Norwegian tilbyder nu 31 direkte ruter fra USA. Fra JFK tilbyder Norwegian hele syv direkte ruter og er dermed det største udenlandske flyselskab i New York målt på antal destinationer.

    ”Vi lancerede vores første USA-flyvninger for to år siden, og responsen fra amerikanske rejsende, på vores lave priser og nye, mere miljøvenlige fly, har været fantastisk. Det er derfor en glæde at kunne lancere nye, eksotiske ruter mellem det amerikanske fastland og de caribiske øer Guadeloupe og Martinique,” siger administrerende direktør Bjørn Kjos.

    ”Satsningen i USA vil fortsætte; både med nye rutelanceringer og etablering af flere amerikanske baser,” fortsætter Kjos.

    De nye ruter vil også give Norwegians passagerer fra Europa en gylden mulighed for at kombinere en storbyferie i New York med eksempelvis en eksotisk ferie i Caribien. Norwegian tilbyder allerede flyvninger fra de skandinaviske hovedstæder og London til de caribiske øer Puerto Rico og St. Croix samt til mange andre destinationer i USA. Læs mere her.

    En spændende mulighed for Norwegians piloter og kabineansatte
    Det er Norwegians nye Boeing 737-800 med gratis WiFi, som skal flyve mellem USA og Caribien. Norwegian er det eneste flyselskab, som tilbyder gratis WiFi mellem USA og Caribien.

    Norwegians piloter og kabineansatte i Europa vil få muligheden for at arbejde ved selskabets midlertidige baser i Guadeloupe og Martinique i vintermånederne. Rekruttering af piloter og kabineansatte til de to baser vil begynde med det samme. Kaptajner, styrmænd og kabineansatte fra Norwegians Europa-virksomhed (Norden, England og Spanien), som har mulighed for et udenlandsophold i fire måneder, opfordres til at søge.

    Ruteinformation
    Norwegians nye ruter mellem USA og Caribien vil starte i begyndelsen af december med tre ugentlige flyvninger fra New York (JFK) til Guadeloupes Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport (PTP) og Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport (FDF).

    Norwegian vil flyve to gange ugentligt fra Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) og Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) til Guadeloupe og Martinique.

    Om Martinique og Gudeloupe
    Martinique og Guadeloupe tilhører den franske del af Caribien. Begge øer er fransk territorium og dermed en del af EU. Sproget er fransk og valutaen er euro. Øerne er betragtet som to af de smukkeste i området og har betydelig færre turister end andre øer i Caribien.

    Norwegian, Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline, Launches Flights from the U.S. to the Caribbean
    Press Release • Jun 25, 2015 09:00 EDT
    [​IMG]
    • Norwegian introduces service from Boston, Baltimore/Washington D.C. and New York City to Guadeloupe Islands and Martinique on December 3, 2015
    • Flights available now from $79 one way (a)
    • Norwegian to offer more routes from JFK than any other non-U.S. airline
    NEW YORK (JUNE 25, 2015) – Norwegian, deemed the world’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and also Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline for the past three consecutive years by SkyTrax, has announced it will launch flights from Boston, Baltimore/Washington, D.C. and New York City to two beautiful and unspoiled Caribbean destinations: the Guadeloupe Islands and Martinique.

    Only two years after launching service to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Norwegian will be the largest foreign airline at JFK in terms of number of routes. Norwegian will offer a total of seven nonstop routes to Bergen, Copenhagen, Guadeloupe, London, Martinique, Oslo and Stockholm. Overall, Norwegian will operate 31 routes from 10 U.S. airports.

    With the new service, Norwegian will offer U.S.-based customers some of the lowest fares to the Caribbean, with an introductory fare starting at $79 one way, valid from all three U.S. airports and starting at $99 one way from Guadeloupe and Martinique in the French Caribbean, also known as the French West Indies.

    Norwegian’s new seasonal service to the French West Indies will launch on December 3, 2015, with three flights per week from JFK to the Guadeloupe Islands’ Pointe-à-Pitre InternationalAirport (PTP) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and from JFK to Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport (FDF) on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

    From Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Norwegian will operate twice weekly service to both Guadeloupe and Martinique. Flights between Baltimore-Washington and Guadeloupe will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and Martinique on Mondays and Fridays. From Boston flights to Guadeloupe will operate on Thursdays and Sundays, and to Martinique on Wednesdays and Sundays.

    Norwegian operates one of the world’s most modern and eco-friendly fleets. On the U.S.-Caribbean routes, the airline will fly its new Boeing 737-800s with 186 comfortable, leather seats and it will be the first airline to offer free Wi-Fi on flights to the Caribbean. Norwegian will also offer customers the option to rent movies and TV shows on their personal devices.

    The airline currently offers 25 nonstop routes from the U.S. to London and Scandinavia, providing more European routes than any other European airline. Service from Las Vegas will commence on October 31, 2015; service from San Juan, Puerto Rico, will commence on November 1, 2015; and service from St. Croix, U.S. V.I., will commence on November 5, 2015.

    “With these new and exciting routes, Norwegian will offer customers in the Northeast nonstop flights to two of the most idyllic islands in the Caribbean,” said Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos. “Norwegian is fully committed to the U.S. market and we will continue to expand by offering more great nonstop destinations to American travelers and growing our U.S. crew bases,” said Kjos.

    To celebrate Norwegian’s new routes, the airline has partnered with the Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board to launch a sweepstakes (b) for one lucky person in Boston, Baltimore/ Washington D.C. and New York City metro areas to win a trip for two to the archipelago, including flights on Norwegian and six nights at some of the islands’ top resorts: La Creole Beach Hotel & Spa, Langley Fort Royal Resort and Auberge de la Vieille Tour Hotel.

    “These new flights with Norwegian are historic for our destination. It rewards our efficient global development strategy implemented in the US market. As our number one in-bound area in American arrivals, accessibility from the East Coast has been a cornerstone of our US strategy. Therefore, this partnership with a high-quality airline such as Norwegian, is an excellent opportunity for more East Coasters to finally tick the Guadeloupe Islands off their bucket list,” said Hilaire Brudey, Chairman for the Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board.

    "For travelers based in key markets across the Northeast, the charms of Martinique are now closer than ever," said Muriel Wiltord, Director Americas of the Martinique Promotion Bureau. "On behalf of the entire tourism community in Martinique, I'd like to extend a very warm welcome to Norwegian. We look forward to sharing our corner of the French Caribbean and grow the number of passengers in New York, New England, and the Washington, D.C. area."

The agreement authorizes unlimited frequencies between any point or points in the EU and any point or points in U.S. territory for any and all U.S., EU, Icelandic, and Norwegian airlines.
