Norwegian Air has secured six weekly slots at Heathrow airport next summer.
Despite bidding for 14, the Airport Coordination Limited (ACL) gave the low-cost airline six slots between 29 March and 24 October 2020.
This was confirmed in the ACL’s summer 2020 report published on 1 December.
“We have a strong track record of disrupting incumbent carriers and alliances by offering low fares and award-winning service on specific routes and destinations that were previously operated as monopolies,” said a spokesperson from Norwegian.
“Our strategy benefits both consumers and businesses, and boosts local economies and employment. We continuously adjust our network in response to demand and we will announce any further changes as and when it is appropriate to do so.”
In October, Norwegian announced it will increase flights from Gatwick to San Francisco, Tampa, Austin and Denver for summer 2020.
It also said there will be service reductions on some long-haul routes, including to Buenos Aires, Miami and Orlando.
