Gatwick expands flight options for Scandinavian travel

Gatwick expands flight options for Scandinavian travelThe adverse weather conditions severely affected many airports in London on Monday 2nd February 2009, but Gatwick managed to stay open, although some flights were canceled.

Now, hostel-staying travelers in London are to be offered greater choice as they ponder their next backpacking destination.

This is due to the increase in services from London Gatwick to Scandinavian cities via the low-cost Norwegian airline, which carries approximately five million passengers in a year.

Norwegian does currently offer flights from Gatwick but will soon provide flights to Oslo and Copenhagen three times and twice daily respectively in addition to Tromso two times a week.

Daily routes to Aalborg, Bergen and Stavangar are also due to fly out from London.

Mike Luddy, commercial director at London Gatwick Airport, commented: "This strengthens our growing route network to the Nordic region and provides our customers with yet more choice from London Gatwick.

"We look forward to welcoming passengers of Norwegian on their program, which is operating almost sixty flights a week."
