Norwegian today welcomed aboard its one millionth passenger number on the airline’s long haul routes from Stockholm Arlanda. The carrier launched long haul service in Sweden in May 2013, when its first non-stop flight departed for New York. Today Norwegian offers seven non-stop long haul routes to the US and Thailand from Stockholm, which makes Norwegian the airline with the most scheduled long haul destinations from Stockholm Arlanda. The airline offers a total of 42 long haul routes between the US, Europe and Asia.
“It is a big accomplishment that a million passengers have flown on Norwegian’s long haul routes to and from Stockholm and means a great deal to us. We are seeing ever growing demand for our long haul flights, among both leisure and business travellers, which shows that there is strong demand for affordable non-stop flights to long haul destinations in modern, comfortable aircraft,” says Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer at Norwegian.
Norwegian is the airline with the greatest growth at Stockholm Arlanda Airport in recent years, and there is particularly strong growth in non-stop service to the US, with Norwegian being the airline that offers the most US destinations. The numerous non-stop flights to the US have not just enabled Swedes to travel to the US; more Americans are also visiting Sweden. Since Norwegian began flying to the US, more than 400,000 Americans have chosen to fly to or from Sweden with Norwegian.
“In a few years, Norwegian will have a long haul fleet with more than 40 787 Dreamliner aircraft, which means that we will launch additional long haul destinations that are not available non-stop from Stockholm,” Mr Ramdahl adds.
Norwegian today surprised the millionth passenger at Stockholm Arlanda. The winner was given a trip for two to the long haul destination of their choice from Stockholm.
