The new route will start in February 2018. Norwegian already offers long-haul flights from London Gatwick to nine US cities and Singapore. Buenos Aires will become Norwegian’s eleventh's long-haul route from London Gatwick as part of continued expansion from the UK into a range of new global markets.
From 14 February 2018, Norwegian will start a year-round service of four weekly flights from London Gatwick to Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport, all on board brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. Economy cabin and premium cabins will be available.
Bjorn Kjos, CEO at Norwegian, said: "With our new Argentina route we are offering UK passengers more choice and lower fares to another exciting global destination. Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan capital city with something to offer all travellers and Norwegian has fares to suit all budgets. From Europe, the USA, Asia and now South America, our long-haul network is going global and the UK will continue to be at the heart of our ambitious plans for expansion."
Stewart Wingate, CEO at Gatwick Airport added: "Norwegian’s new direct route to Buenos Aires shows that the low cost long haul revolution continues to break new ground. The boom in these routes is a major factor in Gatwick recording the second largest increase in direct connectivity of any European airport over the last five years."
