Norwegian Air is adding another European destination. You’ll soon be able to fly to Rome with direct flights from three cities in the United States and you can already book flights for travel later this year.
These new services will start in November with non-stop flights from both Newark Liberty and Los Angeles. Then in February 2018 they will start flying from Oakland as well.
Norwegian Air started selling the Rome flights this morning. Fares from Newark will begin at $189 one-way and at $229 from L.A. and Oakland. A round trip flight from Newark will cost you $360, which is a great price.
Here’s an example of a flight from Newark to Rome in December:
These is the information on the three new routes
- Newark Liberty-Rome: Begins Nov. 9 with four flights a week. Schedule increases to six weekly flights in February.
- Los Angeles-Rome: Begins Nov. 11 with twice weekly service. Schedule increases to three flights a week in February.
- Oakland-Rome: Begins Feb. 6 with two flights a week.
More Routes Coming
As a reminder, service to Barcelona will begin next week when Norwegian adds the first of four non-stop routes from the USA.
Just a week later they launch an even bigger expansion. That’s when the airline will start the first of 12 new non-stop routes it will fly from mid-size cities in the U.S. Northeast to destinations in Ireland and the United Kingdom.
Norwegian plans to use its brand-new Boeing 737 MAX jets for those flights from Providence; Hartford, Conn.; and Newburgh, N.Y., though it will have to start those routes with its Boeing 737-800 variant because of delivery delays for the MAX. Norwegian expects to get its first 737 MAX in early June. We posted some great deals for these new routes yesterday, with prices starting at just $210 for round-trip travel.
With these new additions, they now fly a total of 52 non-stop routes to 13 European destinations from 12 U.S. gateways.
While Norwegian offers great prices, there’s tons of fees to watch out for, unless you’re traveling only with a small carry-on. You’ll be charged for advance seat assignment or meal service for the roughly six-hour flight. A checked bag will cost you $45 one way. Check out their optional service charges here to make sure this is a good deal for you.
