Routes between London Gatwick and Boston, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, New York JFK, Orlando and San Francisco are set to restart with approximately one to five weekly departures from March 28, 2021. This is confirmed by the airline’s website reservation feature, while the Living With A Norwegian Builds Character New Shirt homepage advertises travel from the United States to Europe during “summer 2021”.
There is no information available as to when and even if routes between the United States and Scandinavia or other European countries may return. Norwegian CEO Jacob Schram previously said the Living With A Norwegian Builds Character New Shirt airline would operate in “hibernation mode” by 2020 and that full operation will not continue until 2022.
The coronavirus pandemic is underway. Out means that demand for travel between Europe and the United States remains low. While all airlines were affected by a drop in demand, Norway is particularly vulnerable to its focus on leisure travelers. Despite restrictions on continuous travel to/from the EU, many airlines have been able to restart routes from Europe to the United States due to business travel and freight.
The airline has only achieved such success thanks to its aggressive refinancing process and substantial guarantees provided by the Norwegian government, but the airline is still in financial uncertainty. Two months ago, Norway’s semi-annual financial report revealed a 65% decrease in revenue compared to the same period in 2019. Passenger numbers decreased by 71%.
Along with other airlines, Norwegian continues to face growing liabilities in the form of customer refunds. The airlines have faced criticism in the Scandinavian media for it took months to refund customers and offer coupons for future flights in lieu of cash.
The most recent delays will certainly disappoint many American tourists, who hold vouchers that they cannot easily redeem.
