Thanks for the info LN-KGL. More Sky Interior cabins than I thought. Hope to get one when I fly with Norwegian!

Anyone think that DY barnd in the UK will cause LGW base closure after a shot period of time. EI tried most of the sun routes and failed and they would be better known in UK IMO.

I think they may keep it if they can find enough nordic routes to keep a few aircraft going if the force of fortress orange plus BA and the other locos and charters is not too much for them.

Isn't the British more familar with red, white and blue colours then? It can even happen that the three Norwegian Air Shuttle based aircraft get famous British on their tales - like Roald Dahl - British novelist, short story writer, poet, fighter pilot and screenwriter with Norwegian parents?

Aircraft from the Gatwick base will also fly to Scandinavia.



In other words compared with S12 and W12/13, S13 will get an extra rotation produced with aircraft from the Gatwick base (yellow cells above). It looks like we have to wait until 16 November to get the times for the rest of the flights out of the Gatwick base.

We will see if Norwegian succeed with their focus on serving the British market that may or may not be fed up with low service no smile LCCs with partly tatty/tired aircraft that are not focusing on flying on time. British passengers flying to and from their Mediterranean or Canarian destinations aren't exactly used to be treated with free WiFi today?

CPH LPL start on Friday thrice weekly, new European bases are rumoured I have heard 3 locations mentioned in recent weeks, but focus is on getting ALC & LGW up and running at present. I would expect to see more UK destinations served from the Canary Islands this coming winter.

GLA might be a good fit for some Norwegian action. High leisure and less EZY/FR competition

CWL could be a good bet for Winter canary ops, no competition apart from the charter operators, and proven strong market to TFS, FUE and LPA !

What sort of locations, UK/others etc...?
Any rumours of expansion from LPL?
Does anyone know if LPL could become a base?
Canary Islands: With aircraft based in the canaries presumably?

With current loads and yields, along with the fact they would need to test the market more than just 3 weekly flights, I would say a base is unlikely in the short/medium term.

NEWCASTLE - Had a regular service to Oslo, Stavanger & Bergen in the 90's operated by BRAATHENS / SAS- All Daily 737 services. Region has strong business links as well as tourism. DFDS & FjordLine stopped Ferry route to Scandinavia, so I expect a regular LCC into Scandinavia would do well. Currently Wilderoe, SAS, fares are astrnomical ! Flybe have withdrawn from Bergen. All routes I suspect could do very well.
