There’s no stopping Norwegian. The low-cost airline is launching another route – Gatwick to Singapore this winter from £179 one-way.
The four-weekly flights to Changi Airport, starting on September 28, see Norwegian expand into Asia for the first time.
The number of flights will increase to five every week during the winter. The new Singapore route will be operated on Norwegian’s new state-of-the-art 787 Dreamliner aircraft offering up to 344 seats in both economy and Premium cabins.
Premium cabin fares are available from £699 one way which includes No1 Lounges access at Gatwick, spacious seating with more than a metre of legroom, complimentary meal service and a generous baggage allowance.
Singapore, the cosmopolitan ‘Lion City’, perfectly combines the old with the new – historic neighbourhoods and temples; picturesque beaches and parks; all bordered by modern skyscrapers offering a city lifestyle of shopping malls and fine dining
Norwegian CEO Bjorn Kjos said: “Our transatlantic flights have shown the huge demand for affordable long-haul travel, so we are delighted to expand into new markets and offer our first route to Asia from the UK.
“Travel should be affordable for all so adding Singapore to our growing UK network will give passengers even more choice for affordable, quality travel to a range of global destinations.
“The UK is at the heart of Norwegian’s ambitious plans for growth so it is a significant moment not only to launch this exciting new route, but also for it to be the first long-haul route to take to the skies with our new ‘Norwegian UK’ subsidiary.”
