New Route of the Day (14 December 2023): Norse Atlantic between Berlin and Miami
Norse Atlantic has launched another transatlantic route from Berlin with the introduction of a weekly service to Miami in Florida. The inbound flight from Miami operates every Thursday while the outbound service operates on Fridays. The airline’s 338-seat 787-9s will operate the 8,760-kilometre route for the rest of the winter season. No other carrier operates the route. This route replaces to some extent the airline’s route between Berlin and Fort Lauderdale which operated last winter. Norse Atlantic previously operated year-round non-stop service to New York JFK, but this winter the route is suspended until May 2024. In the summer of 2022 the airline also offered non-stop flights to Los Angeles.
Berlin’s only other non-stop US services in 2023 have been operated by Delta to New York JFK (summer only) and United to New York EWR (year-round) and Washington IAD (summer only).
What they said
Aletta von Massenbach, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH, said: “We are delighted that Norse Atlantic Airways is adding Miami, an exciting long-haul destination, to its BER flight schedule. Florida is a popular holiday destination, especially in winter, and can now be reached non-stop. With Miami and the summer connection to New York’s JFK Airport, Norse flies to two popular US metropolises on the East Coast.”
Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO and founder of Norse Atlantic Airways, added: “Miami has long been a popular destination for soaking up the sun in winter and we are pleased to be able to offer a direct connection from Berlin. Our Norse Atlantic Airways passengers can look forward to a smooth and comfortable travel experience at an affordable price. Passengers can also look forward to our direct summer connection between Berlin and New York City, which will begin again in May.”
