Norwegian to launch low-cost long-haul service from Singapore to London Gatwick

Changi Airport Group today welcomed the announcement by low-cost airline Norwegian of its intention to launch non-stop services between Singapore and London (Gatwick) on 28 September 2017.

Norwegian will launch a 4x weekly service, which will increase to 5x weekly for the Northern Winter Season (29 Oct 2017 to 24 Mar 2018) . It will use a 344-seat Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft in a two-class configuration offering economy and premium cabins. With the launch of this new service, the number of weekly flights from Singapore to London will increase to 50. This translates into an addition of 1,720 (+11%) one-way seats weekly. London is Changi Airport’s 14th busiest route, with over 1.2 million passengers travelling between the two cities in 2016.

Norwegian’s new service will benefit travellers from the United Kingdom, as they can capitalise on Changi’s excellent connectivity to about 120 destinations in South East Asia and South West Pacific for onward travel to the region. Likewise, passengers from Singapore will have access to a plethora of destinations in Europe and even the United States using Norwegian’s global network.

To mark its commencement of operations at Changi Airport, Norwegian is offering one-way Singapore-London fares starting from SGD 199 for economy class, and premium class tickets starting from SGD 839. Fares include all applicable fees and taxes.
