Low-cost, long-haul carrier Norse Atlantic celebrated its latest transatlantic routes on Monday as direct flights from London Gatwick (LGW) and Oslo (OSL) landed at Miami International Airport (MIA) for the first time.

The Norwegian airline, founded in February 2021, started its South Florida operations from Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL) last June. However, with the launch of new routes from London and Oslo, the young carrier has changed its base in the southern Sunshine State.

After successfully launching its latest transatlantic services, Norse Atlantic is also on track to launch direct flights to Miami from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) and Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) this November.

“We are pleased to have commenced operating from Oslo and London direct to Miami, and we look forward to extending our services from Paris and Berlin in December,” said Bjørn Tore Larsen, CEO and Founder of Norse Atlantic Airways.

“Miami has always been a popular destination, and we are committed to providing our passengers with a comfortable and great value service on board our modern Boeing 787 Dreamliners.”

Norse Atlantic currently offers flights to seven destinations in the U.S., including Boston (BOS), Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK), Orlando (MCO), San Francisco (SFO), Washington-Dulles (IAD), and Miami. Additionally, passengers from the U.S. can fly to multiple European destinations such as Rome (FCO), London Gatwick, Oslo, Paris, and Berlin.

Ralph Cutié, Director and CEO of Miami International Airport, said: “We are thrilled that Norse Atlantic has chosen Miami International Airport for all of their South Florida flights, making us their seventh destination in the U.S. We proudly welcome their London Gatwick and Oslo service to Miami-Dade County – two routes that were previously unserved at MIA.”

The airline will operate a service from London Gatwick to Miami four times weekly. The outbound flights are scheduled on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, departing Gatwick at 2:00 PM local time and arriving in Miami at 6:35 PM. The return flights will leave Miami at 8:55 PM, arriving in London the next day at 10:40 AM.

Flights from Oslo will only run twice a week. The outbound flights are set to leave the Norwegian capital every Monday and Friday at 3:50 PM, with an arrival time in Miami at 7:45 PM. The return flight departs Miami at 10:05 PM, arriving in Oslo at 1:05 PM on the following day.

Norse Atlantic operates a fleet of 15 Boeing 787 Dreamliners, with a total capacity of 338 passengers across two cabin classes, including 56 seats in Premium Economy and 282 seats in Economy.

Norse Atlantic Airways markets itself as a low-cost alternative for transatlantic air travel, with return fares for the new London-Miami route starting as low as $515, including taxes.
