News from Norse Airways comes less than two weeks after New York-based carrier JetBlue similarly announced plans to fly between New York and Paris, creating new competition in a market largely dominated by a joint venture between Delta and Air France. KLM.
Norse said it plans to fly daily starting March 26, 2023. Departure from Kennedy Airport is scheduled for 12:30, and arrival in Paris — at 14:05 local time. Westbound flights depart at 7:45 pm and arrive in New York at 10:00 pm.
The Norse Atlantic Airways model is largely borrowed from Norwegian Air — an ultra-low-cost transatlantic airline that quickly emerged as a major transatlantic player before running into economic hardship during the pandemic and eventually shifting its focus to short-haul European flights. Like Norwegian, Norse uses Boeing 787 Dreamliner liners, equipped with premium economy class and regular passenger cabin.
The low-cost airline debuted in June with flights between New York and the Norwegian capital Oslo ( OSL). The airline also operates flights between Oslo and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Los Angeles (LAX), as well as from JFK to London Gatwick (LGW) and Berlin (BER).
