Low-cost carrier Norwegian will fly between Rome and three US airports – Los Angeles, New York City/Newark and Oakland/San Francisco – from November.
It is offering introductory one-way fares of $189, including taxes, to Rome’s Leonardo Da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport.
Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s chief commercial officer, said: “Rome is one of the top tourist destinations in the world, and a favourite among Americans, so it was an obvious choice for us as we continue to expand our transatlantic presence.
“Soon Norwegian will offer more transatlantic routes than any other airline in the world.”
The Italian capital will be the airline’s seventh long-haul European destination served from the US – following Barcelona, which launches in June; Paris; London; and the three Scandinavian capitals of Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm.
The Rome routes will be served by new Boeing 787 Dreamliners, offering economy and premium cabins.
The Newark Liberty International Airport service will launch on November 9, 2017, and operate four times a week until early February 2018, when it increases to six times per week.
Flights from Los Angeles International Airport will start on November 11, 2017, and operate twice weekly until February, when they become thrice-weekly.
The Oakland International Airport service will launch on February 6, 2018, with a twice-weekly service.
The airline will launch at least 25 new routes from the US this year, including 12 transatlantic routes to Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Norway, as well as three new routes to the French Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, from Providence, Rhode Island, and Fort Lauderdale.
