Barcelona is now our sixth nonstop European destination out of the U.S. and over the next few months we will launch another seven nonstop destinations across Europe, making it even more affordable for Americans to travel across the Atlantic,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer.
