Low-cost airline Norwegian is marking its one year anniversary since taking off from Birmingham Airport for the first time by increasing flights to Malaga for the summer and putting on sale the first of its winter flights for 2016 from £29.90 today.
Norwegian is the fastest growing airline at Birmingham Airport having launched more new routes than any other airline over the past year. Over 125,000 passengers have flown Norwegian to five destinations from Birmingham - Barcelona, Madrid, Malaga and since November, Tenerife and Gran Canaria.
From June, Norwegian will increase its service to Malaga with four weekly flights in time for the summer getaway. Holidaymakers can also benefit from free inflight Wi-Fi on brand new aircraft keeping passengers connected at 35,000ft.
Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer at Norwegian said: “Our first year at Birmingham has flown by and has seen Norwegian become the fastest growing carrier at the airport. Our unique combination of high quality, low fares and free Wi-Fi is setting us apart as passengers in Birmingham continue to take advantage of our services. With a huge catchment of passengers in the West Midlands, we’re helping holidaymakers take off with affordable flights now on sale.”
William Pearson, Aviation Development Director at Birmingham Airport said: “Norwegian has excelled at Birmingham Airport over the last year. This rapid expansion has earned Norwegian the title of our fastest growing airline. This is not surprising as Norwegian offers an excellent and affordable product to passengers combined with a growing choice of popular Spanish destinations including Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Tenerife and Gran Canaria.
“We congratulate the airline on its outstanding 12 months here and we look forward to seeing further exciting new routes and services. We are confident that Norwegian will go from strength-to-strength and continue seeing increasing demand from passengers for seats on its expanding list of top destinations.”
Norwegian first launched flights from Birmingham in March 2015 and has grown to become the 16th largest airline operating at Birmingham Airport. To book seats please click here.
