More changes to Norwegian's Gatwick flights

The airline ran the route as winter-only, but has axed it in the face of growing competition.

 

A Norwegian spokesperson told TTG: “As Norwegian moves from growth to profitability, we have decided to discontinue our seasonal London-Las Vegas service following a comprehensive review of the route.”

 

British Airways began operating a summer Gatwick-Vegas schedule in March 2018, making the service year round. BA also operates to Vegas from Heathrow and Virgin Atlantic moved its Gatwick-Vegas flight to Heathrow at the start of this summer.

 

Las Vegas is the latest tussle between BA and Norwegian. BA started flying from Gatwick to Oakland near San Francisco and to Fort Lauderdale, following Norwegian. Both Norwegian and BA have axed services to Oakland. Norwegian has also pulled out of Fort Lauderdale in favour of Miami, while BA will axe Gatwick-Fort Lauderdale in September.

 

Norwegian will still offer 11 US destinations from Gatwick in summer 2020; with Boston, New York JFK, Orlando, Tampa, Denver, Miami, Austin, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago and Los Angeles.
