NORWEGIAN AIRLINES TO LAUNCH BOEING 787 DREAMLINER SERVICE
FROM LOS ANGELES TO SCANDINAVIA IN SPRING 2014

Routes to Offer Nonstop Service to Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo

(Los Angeles, California – September 5, 2013) Norwegian Airlines will launch service from Los Angeles at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Scandinavia using the Boeing 787 Dreamliner in Spring 2014. Nonstop flights will depart weekly between LAX and Stockholm and Oslo, Sweden; and Copenhagen, Denmark.
To celebrate the new route, Norwegian Airlines is offering an introductory fare of $236 one-way on all flights on these routes. Passengers can book travel at www.norwegian.com or work with their preferred travel agent.
“I’m very happy to announce the launch of three new intercontinental destinations," said Norwegian’s Chief Executive Officer Bjørn Kjos. "The major traffic streams currently go between the U.S. and Europe and there’s great demand for high-quality flights at a low-fare between the two continents.”
"We congratulate Norwegian Airlines on the launch of their nonstop service on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner that will provide Angelenos with more low-cost choices to Scandinavia," said Gina Marie Lindsey, Los Angeles World Airports executive director. The route between Los Angeles and Scandinavia will strengthen business, tourism, and cultural ties with one of the most desirable regions in Europe while providing connecting service to additional destinations.”
Norwegian Airlines is the second largest carrier in Scandinavia and third largest low-cost carrier in Europe. The new routes from Los Angeles will allow more Americans the opportunity to explore the Scandinavian region and beyond. The LAX-Copenhagen (CPH) service is scheduled to begin March 1, 2014, with two weekly flights on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The LAX-Stockholm (ARN) service will begin March 2, 2014, with two weekly flights on Wednesdays and Sundays. The LAX-Oslo (OSL) service will begin June 1, 2014, with one weekly flight on Sunday.

It seems a bit odd that a press release about Norwegian Airlines would refer to "Oslo, Sweden."

Interesting. They're using OAK to serve the SF Bay Area, avoiding the higher landing fees etc in SFO and SJC. Surprised they wouldn't go to one of the alternate airports near LA - LGB comes to mind - for the same reason. Is LAX the only area airport that can handle a heavy?

It can't, because of noise issues. Same deal with SNA, which is also a nightmare for pilots because flying over rich people housing.

Norwegian running the same special fare for new route between MCO and Oslo. As with many discounted fares, there are many up charges such as selecting your seat that will boost the fare. Biggest draw would be 787 IMHO.

Ive tried them long haul to JFK. And i must admit i do not like the concept on such long flights. I can handle not buying food. But all the hassle to get a drink (wich is important on long flights). You have to get a hold of a crew memeber on a time where they are not pre occupied with other things and they cannot help you, then pay and lots of hasse until you get your water for $10.

Also the extra charges they want makes the end price a lot closer to the competition than they might want to admit.

And let us never forget that the seats on that 787 is packed tight!

But hey, that is just my taste.
