Norwegian will open 16 new routes from Scandinavia this summer, half of which are from Poland. Passengers travelling from Gdansk, Poznan, Szczecin and Wroclaw will see new direct routes to the Scandinavian cities Oslo, Trondheim, Stockholm and Copenhagen. The first flight takes off on March 31st.
Today, Norwegian launched eight new routes from Poland to the Scandinavian cities Copenhagen, Oslo, Trondheim and Stockholm. The new routes will strengthen Norwegian’s presence in the Polish market and break monopolies on several of the routes that have previously been served by one carrier only.
“We are happy to announce eight new routes from Poland to several Scandinavian destinations. For Polish travellers that means lower fares, more flexibility, great service and free WiFi on board brand new, more environmentally friendly aircraft. Poland is a market of increasing importance and interest to us with strong ties to its Scandinavian neighbours, and we look forward to welcoming new and existing passengers onboard,” said Senior Vice President Commercial Short Haul at Norwegian, Magnus Maursund.
“We believe Scandinavia has a lot to offer our Polish travellers – beautiful landscapes, hip and cultural cities, strong economies for business travellers and last but not least; connections to our long-haul network with destinations such as Los Angeles, New York and Bangkok,” said Maursund.
“Gdansk Lech Walesa Airport has the biggest network of Scandinavian routes in Poland. We are more than happy that Norwegian`s contribution is still growing. We keep our fingers crossed for Norwegian development in Gdansk. This is a good news for our passengers”, said Tomasz Kloskowski CEO of Gdansk Lech Walesa Airport.
Norwegian will also increase frequencies on some of the existing routes between Poland and Scandinavia, specifically from Gdansk and Krakow to Oslo, both going from nine to 11 weekly departures.
This summer, Norwegian will also offer new routes from other Eastern European destinations such as Kaunas to Oslo, Palanga to Copenhagen, as well as Palanga and Tivat to Stockholm.
