Norse Atlantic Airways to add Berlin-Fort Lauderdale route – Business Traveller

Norse Atlantic Airways has announced its latest transatlantic route, with a new service from Germany’s capital to Florida’s coastal city of Fort Lauderdale.

Thrice-weekly flights will commence on December 7, with fares starting from €228 each way.

The announcement follows the launch of Norse Atlantic’s flights from Berlin to Los Angeles and New York JFK this week, the carrier’s first services from Germany.

Norse has been gradually adding transatlantic routes since the airline launched flights between Oslo and New York JFK in June.

The carrier’s Gatwick-New York JFK service launched last week, and Business Traveller’s editorial director Tom Otley was on the inaugural flight. A detailed video review of the flight can be seen below.

Norse also recently outlined plans for seven US routes from Gatwick, and has partnered with Easyjet, Norwegian and Spirit to offer a virtual interline agreement enabling 600 weekly connections at its hubs in Oslo, London, Berlin, New York, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Los Angeles.

Commenting on the Berlin route launches Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO of Norse Atlantic Airways, said:

“We are very pleased to now be able to welcome customers from across Germany on board our state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliners to New York and Los Angeles.

“With the addition of our Fort Lauderdale route commencing in December we will be the largest long haul carrier operating out of Berlin. Our affordable fares will boost transatlantic travel between Europe and the US benefitting local economies on both sides of the Atlantic.”
