Published

Norwegian has announced nonstop service from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) to London Gatwick Airport (LGW), making Austin the first Texas city serviced by Norwegian. Service begins March 27, 2018 and will operate three times per week.

“We’re very excited to bring the Norwegian experience to Austin,” said Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos. “This city makes perfect sense as our first entry into the Lone Star state. Austin is one of the fastest-growing cities in America, which perfectly fits Norwegian, being the world’s fastest-growing airline. We see great opportunities with our new route, both in terms of lowering trans-Atlantic fares for Austinites and bringing more tourists and business travelers to the region, which will help support thousands of local jobs.”
