Why does Norweigan fly LGW-GIG instead of LGW-GRU?

Sun Nov 24, 2019 10:34 pm

Why does Norweigan fly LGW-GIG instead of LGW-GRU? I've read that the Rio de Janeiro is low yielding while Sao Paulo is high yielding. When they are at it why don't they launch CUN or MEX?

I’m not sure Rio is that low yield , it’s a significant oil, gas and insurance city and the beach bit gets well healed travellers .

Because leisure travelers make up most of Norwegian’s customer base from Gatwick. More people travel to Rio for vacation than Sao Paolo.

I think it'd be hard to compete with carriers with an actual premium cabin on LON-GRU. Their ULCC model works best on a destination like GIG, although not to say they couldn't make GRU work.

A Norwegian choice for GRU or GIG could be argued both ways. Going to GIG, Norwegian will appeal to traffic in Europe wanting to go to Rio - it may stimulate the market as more people from Europe will consider traveling to Rio with Norwegian's flight and hopefully, lower fares.

I do think Norwegian would better in GRU. The stimulation would be at the Sao Paulo end. Sao Paulo City and vicinity are wealthy areas with an economy that is much bigger than Rio's. Serving GRU, Norwegian would get more of those people considering a trip to Europe.
