Norse Atlantic Airways to start routes to Florida's hot sports of Fort Lauderdale and Orlando in May.

The long-haul budget-type airline, Norse Atlantic Airways has put two Florida sunshine destinations on sale today from London Gatwick to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale. 

The flights to Orlando will begin on 25th May 2023 and to Fort Lauderdale on 26th May 2023 and are in addition to the current daily London to New York service that the fledgling carrier started in August last year.

Norse will operate flights to Orlando four times a week in May and June and then make it a daily service in the height of the summer peak season with fares starting from £409 return including taxes. Flights to Fort Lauderdale will operate three times a week in May and June and four times a week for the rest of the summer season with fares starting from £410 return including taxes. 

Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO of Norse Atlantic Airways said: “We are very pleased to announce two new routes from London Gatwick to the popular holiday destination of Florida. In addition to our current daily New York flights we will also be releasing for sale further destinations between London and the US by the end of February. As a result, our UK based airline, Norse Atlantic UK, will serve more destinations to the US from London Gatwick than any other carrier this summer.

We look forward to a busy summer ahead as we bring value fares and a fantastic service to passengers looking to travel across the Atlantic.” 

Stewart Wingate, the chief executive officer at Gatwick Airport commented: “It’s fantastic to see Norse Atlantic add two new Florida services from London Gatwick Airport, to complement their current New York route. This will bring different products to our transatlantic portfolio, at affordable prices.

Both Orlando and Fort Lauderdale are understandably very popular destinations, especially among families, so it’s great news for passengers across London and the Southeast to have more choice ahead of the summer holidays,”
