LAS VEGAS – On Oct. 31, 2016, Norwegian, the World's Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline, launched its third nonstop destination between Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport and London, followed by nonstop service between Las Vegas and Oslo on Nov. 1. The airline launched its first two nonstop routes from Las Vegas, Copenhagen and Stockholm, in November 2015. 

“Our Las Vegas routes are performing well, so I am confident that the new service to London and Oslo will be also be a local favorite. Nevadans have shown that they truly appreciate our new aircraft, low fares and award-winning service – and that is a testament to the great relationship we have with McCarran International Airport and the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority,” said Thomas Ramdahl, chief commercial officer for Norwegian Airlines. “Our mission has always been that everyone should afford to fly, and this year we’ve made that mission a reality by increasing frequency and adding capacity on several transatlantic routes. We look forward to welcoming even more passengers onboard – whether they are from Nevada or the surrounding area, as well as bring tens of thousands more European visitors.” 

“McCarran is pleased to welcome this additional service from Norwegian. Last year, the airline invested significantly in Las Vegas with the introduction of service from Copenhagen and Stockholm, and the customers’ response was overwhelmingly positive,” said Rosemary Vassiliadis, Director of Aviation, McCarran International Airport. “We’re confident Norwegian’s new service to London-Gatwick and Oslo will be equally well received, making it easier than ever for travelers to fly between Las Vegas and some of Europe’s greatest cities.” 

Norwegian’s service to London will operate twice weekly on Mondays and Thursdays, while weekly service to Oslo will operate on Tuesdays. The carrier already operates weekly, nonstop service to Stockholm on Saturdays and Copenhagen on Sundays.
