Whilst Norwegian has ditched long haul flying until 2021, it is preparing to restart some flights from the UK.
From 1st July it intends to operate flights to Oslo and Copenhagen from both London Gatwick and Edinburgh. This is far earlier than the planned 2021 resumption for European flying and a small boost for Gatwick Airport.
Norwegian was already flying a limited number of domestic and cargo routes in Scandinavia using eight aircraft. These will be joined by a further twelve planes to help support the slow ramp up to 76 European routes in July.
Everyone over the age of six will be required to wear a mask and all hand baggage that is too big to fit under the seat in front will have to be checked in. There will be no catering on board and middle seats will be allocated last to maximise distancing.
