Norwegian Air Shuttle launched flights from three United States airports to Paris’ Charles De Gaulle Airport on July 29, starting with four weekly flights from New York’s JFK International Airport, two weekly flights from Los Angeles International Airport and one weekly flight from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. This initiative marks Norwegian’s first operation from Charles De Gaulle Airport. The airline has been operating flights from Paris Orly International Airport to five Scandinavian destinations.

The company prides itself on what may indeed be the most cost efficient way to get from the U.S. to many continental European destinations. Online bookings show one-way rates between Los Angeles (LAX) and Paris Charles De Gaulle (CDG) to be as low as $229.00.

Norwegian B787

In less than three years since the launch of its U.S. operations, Norwegian now has more nonstop routes from the U.S. to Europe than any other European airline. The airline already provides nonstop service to London, Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm, as well as seasonal service to Bergen. In total, Norwegian offers 38 routes from the U.S. All Paris flights are operated on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

The launch was marked in Los Angeles by the unveiling of the Norwegian Aura Reader, an app accessible by computer that snaps a photo or reads an uploaded photo of the person searching and returns an analysis of their dominant aura matched by a description of the destination Norwegian serves that best fits their aura type.

Prior to its Paris service this summer, Norwegian launched four other key long-haul routes from the U.S. Boston-London on March 27; Boston-Oslo on April 2; Oakland/San Francisco-London on May 12; and Boston-Copenhagen on May 17.

The airline incorporates an aggressive corporate sales policy and works with a variety of companies, large and small, to facilitate business travel, offering a premium cabin with added legroom and perks and access to a selection of airport lounges around the world. It offers its own frequent flyer program, Norwegian Reward, not attached to other airline programs or alliances.

Norwegian Air Shuttle’s headquarters are in Oslo, Norway. The airline was founded in 1993 and now ranks as Europe’s third largest low-cost carrier.
