The new route will operate four times weekly and will begin operating in May 2016. It will be Gatwick’s only direct service to Boston.

The airline also announced that due to increased demand for routes, it would increase its services between London Gatwick and New York (JFK) to daily from October this year. 

Bjorn Kjos, chief executive of Norwegian, said: "Our continued growth in the UK demonstrates the need for quality, affordable travel. Our free in-flight wi-fi on flights within Europe, fleet of brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliners on transatlantic routes and affordable fares give us a competitive advantage. Norwegian is fast becoming a household name for UK travellers and we look forward to welcoming a record-breaking one million customers aboard Europe’s youngest fleet his summer."
