Low-cost long-haul carrier Norse Atlantic Airways (N0/NBT) has announced four new US destinations from London Gatwick (LGW/EGKK) for 2023.
The first to launch is Washington DC which launches on the 1st June and operates up to six times per week during the summer with return fares from £430.
A daily service to Los Angeles launches later that month on the 30th June with fares starting from £430 return.

“This marks an important day for the UK aviation industry and for consumers as we celebrate serving more destinations to the US from London Gatwick this summer than any other airline. The addition of direct flights to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and Boston to our already popular New York, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale/Miami services will provide greater choice and value for consumers.
“The Norse team are disruptors. We look forward to making our unbeatable product available to even more customers this summer, as we build the industry’s first successful low-cost long haul airline.
“We have made a significant investment in our UK airline, based at Gatwick Airport, and now employ over 370 colleagues at our London base. I am very pleased that we are fulfilling our pledge to create competition in the transatlantic market that will benefit consumers, stimulate business travel and lead to job creation on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO of Norse Atlantic Airways.
The new routes will mean that Norse Atlantic will serve seven US destinations in 2023 from Gatwick making it the airport’s No1 transatlantic airline.
“We are delighted to welcome four new Norse Atlantic routes this summer, giving passengers a fantastic choice of seven US destinations at excellent value, whether for holidays, business or visiting family and friends.
Stewart Wingate, Chief Executive Officer, Gatwick Airport added “The new services mean Gatwick and Norse will provide an increasingly competitive offering, which is great news for passengers across London and the South East, as well as businesses in the region,”
