Norwegian long haul, soon just a memory in scandinavia

Posted on

According to the norwegian news outlet E24 all of Norwegian’s long haul flights will dissapear from Copenhagen during the winter 2019/2020, that is four routes, New york JFK, Oakland, Fort Lauderdale and Los Angeles. Stockholm Arlanda will get to keep its Norwegian service to Fort Lauderdale, Meanwhile Oslo Gardermoen will get to keep flights to New York JFK and Fort Lauderdale during the winter 2019/2020.

According to Flyg24Nyheter, Norwegians strife for increased profitability is a big factor in the removal of long haul flights from Scandinavia in the winter schedule. Another big factor is said to be that Norwegian is having engine problems with their dreamliners which have resulted in a decrease of available long haul aircraft.

It is important to keep in mind that it is not certain that these routes will dissapear this upcoming winter, but according to E24, who have been in contact with Norwegian, it is more than likely that the routes mentioned above will be shut down in the winter of 2019/2020.
