Beat their own record from January and flew New York-London in five hours and nine minutes.
January 15th this year, a Norwegian Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner used five hours and 13 minutes from the JFK airport in New York to London Gatwick. That was a new record for the route.
Now, the low-cost airline has beaten its own record with four minutes, writes the industry site Check-in.dk.
It was February 8 this year, the Norwegian Dreamliner ended up in the midst of a powerful jet stream.
The plane with Captain Martin Wood in the cockpit flew from New York at 11.58 local time and landed at 22.50 in London local time - about an hour before scheduled arrival.
The route was flown at a height of 33,000 feet (10,060 meters) and had a speed of 695 knots, equivalent to 1285 kilometers per hour.
"We have gone from being fast-growing to being fastest flying. We flew in 33,000 feet, roughly in the middle of the jet stream, which was surprisingly comfortable, "said Martin Wood, according to Daily Mail.
