Norse Atlantic continues to tweak its schedules. After announcing a raft of Winter Sun destinations, including Barbados, Kingston and Montego Bay, the airline has made a further change to its Autumn / Winter timetable with the addition of Miami.

Departing from Gatwick, the flights will operate four times a week from 18th September on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Flight times vary slightly by day:

Norse Atlantic swaps Fort Lauderdale for Miami
  • Z0 721 departs at 2pm and arrives at 6:35pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
  • Z0 721 departs at 10am and arrives at 2:35pm on Sundays

Return flights are equally varied, with the Sunday return three hours earlier than normal.

The route will replace Fort Lauderdale, which is the Gatwick or Stansted equivalent of the greater Miami area. Norse Atlantic says that “Customers travelling on our Fort Lauderdale route after 17 September will be rebooked onto our new Miami service or offered a full refund.”

Flights to Miami are now bookable on the Norse website and start at £450, although that only gets you the basics – no seat reservation, luggage or food included. You can read our review of flying Premium on Norse Atlantic from Gatwick to New York here.

    I sometimes wonder if it is only non-lgbt+ people writing these insensitive comments…? Speaking as a gay guy, this kind of “pointless pandering” from supportive companies is meaningful to me.

      100% agree try growing up in the 80s and then try and tell me this doesn’t matter.

      • Alex G says:

        I grew up in the 70s. Companies changing their logos for “pride” are insincere and I find it irritating. They are just jumping on a bandwagon to try to increase profits. It’s like greenwashing.

        If you find my opinions insensitive then you need a thicker skin.

        I am no more proud to be gay than I am to have blue eyes.

          Ditto. Some companies are true allies, and did the right thing before everyone else did when it was safe. Most certainly are not. Can’t wait to see the pride party at the Hilton Jeddah. You’re a fool if you think they’re doing anything that would risk their profits. Maybe I worked in marketing too long.

    • His Holyness says:

      Very well put. We will see some of the biggest partners of HfP engage with Pride month, BA, Virgin, Hilton etc. Virgin are especially big on Pride and HfP seem to support them. The airline industry would be lost without the LGBTQI+ community.
      It might annoy a few people if HfP “panders” to the LGBTQI+ but will probably endear them to more. The rest are indifferent.
