NEW YORK (MARCH 1, 2018) – Norwegian, the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and Airline of the Year 2017, launched its inaugural service from Newark Liberty International Airport to Paris Orly Airport yesterday. The airline now operates three routes to Europe – Barcelona, Paris and Rome – from this airport. The new service complements the existing Paris service from New York’s JFK International Airport, which was launched in 2016, and is the first of four routes from the United States to Paris launched by Norwegian in the first half of 2018.
“Paris is one of the most in-demand destinations within our global network, and we are excited to launch a series of new nonstop routes from the U.S. with our brand new, fuel-efficient aircraft. As our commitment is to make travel to Europe even more affordable for Americans, we are pleased to offer eight nonstop routes to Paris and give more Americans the opportunity to experience our friendly, award-winning service,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer.
With the addition of this service, Norwegian now operates double daily service from the New York area to Paris giving tristate travelers more choice and flexibility for affordable travel to Europe. Flights to Paris are available for sale on Norwegian’s website. Additionally, the website’s low fare calendar displays the lowest available fares to all of Norwegian’s destinations.
