Norwegian pinpoints Singapore as springboard for Asia expansion

Further expansion into Asia has been signaled by Norwegian following the launch of low-cost flights between Gatwick and Singapore in September.

No new destinations have been disclosed but the low-cost carrier sees Singapore as a springboard for future growth.

The airline currently flies four times a week to Singapore Changi airport using Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Global head of sales Lars Sande and UK and Ireland head of sales Dominic Tucker delivered presentations to more than 65 agents from travel and trade organisations in Singapore this week to explain the airline’s low-cost long-haul model and its plans for future expansion.

Sande said: “It’s a pleasure to open the door to Singapore’s travel industry which will help make our new low-cost long-haul service a success.

“With more than 200 aircraft on order, Asia will be a key part of our future growth and Singapore offers a springboard to more competition and affordable fares in the market.

“Following our successful event, we look forward to starting a deep relationship with Singapore’s travel trade who will now be able to confidently sell our high-quality flights to customers.”
