Another long haul route for Norwegian Airlines, along with New York and Bangkok.
Safe to say that this rout will be started with the A343-300 from HiFly?

Copenhagen - Fort Lauderdale twice a week
Norwegian will fly twice a week between Copenhagen (CPH) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL), on Mondays and Fridays. Departure from Copenhagen is at 14:45, arriving in FLL at 19:30 local time. Departure from FLL is at 21:30, arriving CPH at 12:45 the next day. The first flight is November 29.

I think this service will be very successful. Two sets of friends who live in OSL already plan to use this new service to seek out the warm weather and shopping in FL. These folks previously lived in FL and visit about every 2 years and had planned on using the NYC service to get to the US, so they are excited this new service puts them squarely where they want to be.
Warm weather and a favorable exchange rate doesn't hurt marketing efforts either, and I hope DY gets a fair share of US originating traffic as well to visit Scandinavia. Norway is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places on this earth, and I encourage anyone to seriously consider visiting this awesome country, easily connected with DY service to ARN and CPH.

Quoting luv2fly (Reply 13): So I would think that they would check out Disney and Universal. It is a pretty sweeping generalization to say Scandinavians aren't theme park fans.
It's a pretty sweeping generalzation to say that American's aren't fans of Brazilian beach resorts, but both statements are still true. Orlando is not popular with Scandanavians. Just like it's not popular with Italians, French or Spainards.

Quoting mah4546 (Reply 10):
Scandanavians aren't theme park fans. A good portion probably aren't heading to Orlando at all.
Liseberg, LegoLand, Tivoli, Hunderfossen, Kristiansand Zoo and Amusement Park, Bakken, Grona Lunds Tivoli plus a number of others all say differently; apart from LegoLand most of these parks are supported primarily by the local populations. This very morning I received a mass email from HRG with package deals for EuroDisney from Oslo.

Quoting flymia (Reply 23): FLL immigration is pretty bad. Terminal 4 the only international terminal and is an absolute joke of a building.
I agree however, they are currently in the process of renovating and expanding Terminal 4 so that's a plus! It's currently a zoo in there throughout the day and evenings with woefully inadequate seating for NK's customers.
Straight'n Up 'N Fly Right Son ;)
25 B747forever: Now DY has both NYC and Florida covered, Next must be California, with service to LAX.
26 flymia: Agreed 100% and based on how busy it is at night I wonder if Norwegian will get towed over to terminal 2 for the sake of everyone leaving out of term
27 crownvic: Does anyone remember Transwede use to fly this route with MD80's back in the 80's? The flight stopped, but cannot remember if it was Gander or Bangor.
28 harmonium: Correct. The A340s are leased as a backup for the 787. I believe that due to the fact that these flights are not to start in another half a year, it
29 SANFan: Nice to see an intercontinental add for FLL! (I'm always happy to see the "little guy" win a hand now and then.) bb
30 Navigator: Interesting assumption. Never heard this before. I assumed scandinavians are frequent travellers to Orlando. Both Sea world and Disney attract many s
31 SAS A340: Would it be wrong to say that a cruise ship is some kind of theme/water park? because if it was,the number of Scandinavians who vissited them, would
