Norse Atlantic cuts Barbados flights

The saga of Norse Atlantic’s new Caribbean flights continues.

One of the nails in Norwegian’s coffin was that it chose to fly long haul routes from London Gatwick with strong seasonality on a year-round basis.

Norse Atlantic, which has (literally) inherited Norwegian’s long haul fleet, is loathe to make the same mistake.

Norse Atlantic cuts Barbados to five flights per week

It was planning three Caribbean routes that will make the most of its aircraft during the quieter winter months when leisure passengers are less keen on a (cold) USA East Coast city break:

  • Barbados – daily
  • Kingston (Jamaica) – three flights per week
  • Montego Bay (Jamaica) – four flights per week

The first sign of problems was when the launch of the routes was pushed back from late October to 1st December.

Last week we told you that Kingston had been scrapped entirely before a single flight has taken off.

Now, the trimmers have been taken to Barbados. Two weekly flights have been cancelled (Sunday and Tuesday) with the route now seeing five flights per week.

Fingers crossed for Montego Bay ….
