Norwegian to launch London Gatwick to Singapore flight connection

Norwegian SingaporeEuropean budget airline Norwegian has released details of its latest long-haul route addition. Effective from the 28 September 2017, Norwegian will operate London to Singapore flights four times a week in each direction.

Announcing the new flights, airline CEO Bjorn Kjos said they would offer UK flyers more options for the busy route with the bonus of being affordable and coming with the Norwegian stamp of quality. He noted that Singapore would be another essential component in the carrier’s rapidly expanding network of global destinations.

Norwegian is headquartered in Oslo but will establish a UK affiliate branch to be based at London’s Gatwick Airport. This means it will be able to utilise bilateral traffic rights to its advantage.

The flights will depart from Gatwick with departures scheduled for late in the morning. Flight times are a little less than 13 hours and will see passengers land at Singapore Changi Airport early the following morning local time. The return leg takes one hour longer and departure times from Singapore vary.

Norwegian has set the bare bones cost of flying this route at £179.90. This includes all relevant taxes, but does not include a fixed seat, any meals or checked baggage. These add-ons cost an extra £25 apiece or a discount rate of £50 for all three.

Opting for a round-trip with Norwegian without any extras costs £359.80. Return fares on British Airways and Singapore Airlines average well above the £500 mark, but these two carriers do offer the extras as standard and also operate daily flights.
