The FINANCIAL — Low-cost airline Norwegian, on August 14 signed a new deal that will provide more destinations for UK thrill seekers hoping to hit the ski slopes this winter.
The fast-growing airline has signed new agreements with three renowned tour operators in the UK – Nielson Travel, Balkan Holidays and Skiworld. Norwegian will provide charter flights from London Gatwick using aircraft equipped with free WiFi for UK travellers to take advantage of top ski destinations in France, Spain and Bulgaria during the winter season, according to Norwegian.
Norwegian will also operate charter flights on behalf of TUI, Thomas Cook and Vitaltours as part of the new agreement struck in the Nordic region. Scandinavians will benefit from charter flights to the Canary Islands, otherwise known to Norwegians as Syden (‘the South’) for some guaranteed winter sun.
Together the UK and Nordic deals are valued at over £15 million.
