Norwegian’s Routes from Puerto Rico to Europe Return for the Winter 2016 Season

Press release   •   Mar 14, 2016 13:30 EDT

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (MARCH 14, 2016) – Norwegian, the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline, will resume its seasonal service from San Juan to Europe in November following a successful first winter season. The St. Croix-Copenhagen route will also return. The world’s fastest-growing global airline launched flights from San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marín InternationalAirport to London, Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm, and from St. Croix to Copenhagen last November.

“These European routes are back by popular demand. Beyond our four nonstop destinations, Puerto Ricans can also connect easily to other exciting European cities like Barcelona, Madrid, Berlin and Amsterdam – just to name a few,” said Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer Thomas Ramdahl. “We are also pleased to see how many Europeans – Scandinavians especially – are now discovering what a great tourist destination Puerto Rico is since there have been so few routes from Europe previously.”

“This is great news for Puerto Rico, England and the Scandinavian countries. We are delighted with the success Norwegian’s direct routes between Copenhagen, London, Oslo, Stockholm and San Juan have achieved. The response and acceptance of Puerto Rico’s five-star qualities among European travelers who want to enjoy a top destination in the Caribbean continues to strengthen the Island’s image as a world-class destination in the region,” stated Ingrid I. Rivera Rocafort, Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company. “We are confident our partnership with Norwegian will continue to stimulate demand and open new opportunities for Puerto Rico in these countries and beyond.”

Norwegian’s European service from San Juan will resume on November 2 with service on Wednesdays and Saturdays to London; November 4 with service on Fridays to Copenhagen; November 6 with service on Sundays to Oslo; and on November 3 with service on Thursdays to Stockholm. Service from St. Croix to Copenhagen will resume on November 4 with service on Fridays.

Flights to Europe are now available for purchase at Norwegian.com/us, with fares as low as $179 one-way, including taxes. The lowest available fare can be found by reviewing the Low Fare Calendar.

Norwegian’s other Caribbean routes include nonstop service from Guadeloupe and Martinique to three U.S. cities: Baltimore/Washington DC, Boston and New York.

Norwegian also recently announced the launch of seven additional long-haul routes from the U.S: Boston-London on March 27; Boston-Oslo on April 2; Oakland/San Francisco-London on May 12; Boston-Copenhagen on May 17; New York-Paris on July 29; Los Angeles-Paris on July 30; and Fort Lauderdale-Paris on August 4.
