New Route of the Day – Americas (18 September 2023): Norse Atlantic between Oslo OSL and Miami
Norse Atlantic launched its latest transatlantic service on Monday 18 September, between its Oslo OSL base and Miami. The 7,625-kilometre route will be maintained 2-weekly, on Mondays and Fridays, with its 338-seat 787-9 aircraft. It faces no competition between the two cities. The launch coincides with the carrier’s introduction of 4-weekly flights between London LGW and Miami, replacing its service to Fort Lauderdale.
Flight Z023 departs Oslo OSL at 15:50 local time, arriving in Miami at 19:45 local time. The inbound service, operating as flight Z024, takes off from the Florida airport at 22:05 local time, touching back down in the Norwegian capital at 13:05 local time the following day.
What they said
Bjorn Tore Larsen, Founder and CEO of Norse Atlantic, said: "We are pleased to have commenced operating from Oslo and London direct to Miami, and we look forward to extending our services. Miami has always been a popular destination and we are committed to providing our passengers with a comfortable and great value service on board our modern Boeing 787 Dreamliners.”
Ralph Cutie, Director and CEO of Miami International Airport, added: “We are thrilled that Norse Atlantic has chosen Miami International Airport for all of their South Florida flights, making us their seventh destination in the US. We proudly welcome their London Gatwick and Oslo service to Miami-Dade County - two routes that were previously unserved at MIA.”
Norse Atlantic to add two more routes to Miami
Norse Atlantic will further grow its Miami destination network with the addition of services from Paris CDG and Berlin. Flights from the French capital will commence on 11 December and run 4-weekly, while services from the German capital city will launch on 14 December with a weekly rotation.
Miami becomes Norse Atlantic’s seventh gateway in the US. The airline already serves Boston, Los Angeles, New York JFK, Orlando MCO, San Francisco, and Washington IAD. In addition to Oslo OSL, London LGW, Paris CDG and Berlin, US operations are also maintained out of Rome FCO.
By January 2024, Norse Atlantic will operate 216 flights per month from its European bases to the United States, with a total of just over 73,000 outbound seats. The largest volume of operations will be out of London LGW, from which it will run 110 flights per month, or more than half of its total transatlantic operation.
