Norse Atlantic switching to Miami in September.

Norse Atlantic Airways has confirmed it will switch operations from Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport to Miami International for its services from London Gatwick and Oslo from 18th September. Any customers with bookings for the Fort Lauderdale route after 17th September will be rebooked onto the new Miami service or offered a full refund.

The airline is billing this as a change to benefit passengers and increase loads as Miami has high levels of passenger demand with both direct and connecting traffic volumes greater than other airports in South Florida, plus will boost the airlines freight operations. "We look forward to being able to offer our cargo customers increased choice and flexibility as we begin operations from our new South Florida base in September,” said Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO Norse Atlantic Airways.

Norse Atlantic will continue to operate its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft on the route which features a premium cabin and an economy cabin and a range of fares.  Norse Dreamliners also have a more comfortable cabin altitude, with cleaner air and better humidity. The largest windows on any jet worldwide, with individual dimmers, to suit passenger  needs throughout the flight along with LED lighting, that is supposed to give a natural daylight feel in the cabin. 

Ralph Cutiรฉ, MIA Director and CEO said "We are thrilled that Norse Atlantic has chosen MIA for all of its South Florida flights. We look forward to welcoming their London Gatwick and Oslo service to Miami-Dade County, and to becoming their seventh destination in the U.S."
