ORLANDO (AUGUST 1, 2017) – Norwegian, the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline for the third consecutive year and Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline for the fifth consecutive year, last night launched its first flight from Orlando International Airport to Paris’ Charles De Gaulle Airport. Flights will operate once per week on Mondays, with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. Norwegian now offers more European connections from Orlando than any other airline.
“Norwegian continues to offer more Americans easier and more affordable access to Paris. We are proud that Norwegian now offers more connections to Europe from Orlando than any other airline. These new flights will also bring thousands of more tourists to Florida and support the local economy,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer.
