Norse Atlantic Airways is planning a new route for Summer 2024, with a Paris – Los Angeles route.
The airline is planning to operate six flights a week between Paris Charles de Gaulle and Los Angeles International Airport, from the 1st of May 2024.
Planned operation is as follows:
DEPART CDG 16:15 ARRIVE LAX 19:05 DEPART LAX 21:00 ARRIGE CDG 17:00 Commences 1st May 2024 Operates Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays Booked Equipment: Boeing 787
Norse Atlantic offers two cabin choices, Economy and Premium. Passengers can choose from a simple range of fares, Light, Classic and Flextra, that reflect the way that they want to travel, and which options are important to them. Light fares represent Norse’s value option while Flextra fares include the maximum baggage allowance, two meal services an enhanced airport and onboard experience and increased ticket flexibility.
As such, lead-in one-way lead-in pricing has been announced, with fares starting from €319 in Economy and €665 in Norse Premium including all taxes.
“We are pleased to introduce this new direct route, connecting two of the world’s most vibrant and culturally rich cities,” said Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO and Founder of Norse Atlantic Airways. “Passengers will now have the opportunity to enjoy a seamless and convenient journey, while experiencing Norse Atlantic Airways’ renowned comfort, outstanding service, and competitive fares.”
This could get interesting, fast.
The Paris – Los Angeles pair is going to be an interesting challenge, with it hotly contested, with the following all having a non-stop flight:
- Air France
- Air Tahiti Nui
- Delta Air Lines
- French Bee (Paris Orly)
That covers a range of price points, as well as connectivity options.
With a near-daily service, Norse Atlantic is trying to make a play for passengers here who are price-sensitive, pitching it nearer to French Bee, rather than the other carriers.
It’ll be interesting to see if they can make the route work for them – there’s a lot of capacity out there already with Norse bringing 1692 seats extra a week on the city pair.
