Norwegian to "carpet bomb" Denmark w/12 new routes


The Norwegian airline Norwegian is to " carpet bomb " Denmark with 12 new routes, starting next year.


The Norwegian airline goes straight into a price war with KLM owned Transavia who has also announced massive comitment on the Danish market.


Norwegian is to start routes to places where Transavia has already announced it will fly.

The Dutch airline Transavia has been surprised by the interest and has sold over 12 000 tickets in the last few days wich has led to the Dutch airline to announce further routes.

The Dutch contender is to start routes on 8th of December this year.


However with all together 18 routes, Norwegian will be the biggest and will start new routes


Copenhagen - Amsterdam
Copenhagen – Budapest
Copenhagen – Edinburgh
Copenhagen – Faro
Copenhagen – Heraklion
Copenhagen – Krakow
Copenhagen – Paris/Orly
Copenhagen – Palma de Mallorca
Copenhagen – Praha
Copenhagen – Pisa
Copenhagen – Split
Aalborg – Malaga


Norwegian is also looking at London, Barcelona and Rome

That's a good thing, as HV is rarely really cheap IMHO, at least compared to FR, U2 and the likes.



Ryanair: never again!

They're just fighting for the market share that was left by the demise of Sterling. I guess some routes will see some cuts on either side next year.

True, HV typically doesn't offer the real low fares, but instead offers quite a large amount of seats that are reasonably-priced (EUR 130-160 return fares).

Is it only me that thinks HV aren't really very cheap, whenever I search I'm never impressed at their fares, exapmple, AMS-PMI in late may/early June (even with a horrendous 05:05 AMS departure, all in costing €180 rtn is hardly cheap, on top of that, meals, luggage etc I guess?

I hope Norwegian give HV a real run for their money.

Looking at earlier posts, it's not only you  Wink

However, 180 rtn for May-June on AMS-PMI (incl. luggage, excl. food) is not strange. AB's lowest priced flight around the dates is 168 rtn (but it depends on the exact dates if AB or HV ic cheaper), FR from NRN is around 150 rtn (excl. luggage).

HV is just not using the very low fares-concept as a marketing concept. They are not really a LCC anyways, and do not pretend to be it; they advertise themselves as a holiday / feel good-carrier. Their pricing model is similar to Air Berlin, for example. And, like AB, they do sell seats to tour operators.

Throughout the Summer they have far more charter flights than 'low-cost' flights.

Cimber have already started a daily service to Gatwick. Granted, one daily CRJ doesn't exactly fill a gap left by three 737s. I believe Transavia and BH Air have been doing a few of the charter flights left by Sterling.

Following Sterling's demise Danish air space will be as crowded as never before...


Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs, Preben Norholm
