Norse Atlantic Airlines is the next contestant in the bankruptcy riddled North Atlantic low-cost-carrier market. The airline is basically the successor of Norwegian Air Shuttle’s long haul division, one of many failed attempts to establish an LCC presence on long haul routes between Europe and America. On August 12, the carrier celebrates its inaugural flight between New York‘s JFK airport and London-Gatwick.
In the days and months after that, their oneway premium economy fares are worth a closer look, selling tickets as low as US$199 (~€188) for the eastbound oneway. Roundtrip fares of $570/£452 in both directions are pretty decent, as well.
Since Norse Atlantic Airlines is not part of any major airline booking network yet, none of our usual ways of linking works.
Prices for premium economy roundtrips US$570 (~€539) in either direction are pretty attractive. That fare easily beats legacy carrier’s on this route. Even if you have to add US$70 (~€66) for a checked bag each way.
The fare shows up for departures in August, September and October 2022. Because of high surcharges on flights departing from the UK, westbound Oneways (US$199 (~€188) in Economy, US$372 (~€352) in Premium Economy) aren’t as good.
The airline uses ex-Norwegian Boeing 787-9 aircraft on the route, with a 3-3-3 seating in economy. Premium economy passengers enjoy a little more room (2-3-2). Highlight is the almost unbeatable reclining angle for that travel class:
Search & Book
We haven’t been able to locate fare rules for this offer, but we can tell you that flights are scheduled in August, September and October 2022. Since the airline doesn’t show up on Google Flights, going to their website and searching for tickets individually is not only the best, but only choice.
Norse Atlantic Airlines does not offer a frequent flyer program. Further, the airline is not affiliated with other airlines’ programs. You will earn zero miles in any case.
