Great news! Now you can fly from San Francisco International Airport to Barcelona and Paris with Norwegian! The airline’s first flight from San Francisco to Paris commenced on October 27, with its Barcelona service on October 28.

“The Bay Area has been one of our most successful regions since our arrival in May 2014. Shortly after, we became the leading European airline in California, offering more nonstop routes to Europe than any other airline. With our flights performing even better from San Francisco, we are pleased to now offer three routes out of SFO and have also increased our frequencies for next summer,” said SVP Commercial at Norwegian, Matthew Wood.

“We are excited that Norwegian has chosen SFO for their nonstop flights to Barcelona and Paris this fall,” said Airport Director Ivar C. Satero. “This move gives travelers at SFO even more ways to enjoy Norwegian’s amazing value.”

Norwegian has another connection to San Francisco and its history: Harvey Milk. The airline honors some 100 heroes across various fields on its tailfins, adored with their picture. Since 2015, eight American tail fin heroes have been introduced, with Harvey Milk as the most recent on in March this year. Harvey Milk joined the rank of recently spotlighted American tailfin heroes including Mark Twain, Charles Lindbergh, Arthur Collins, Babe Ruth, Clara Barton, Sojourner Truth and Benjamin Franklin. Each of these historical figures share Norwegian’s vision of pushing boundaries, inspiring others and challenging the status quo.

The new San Francisco to Paris service is offered twice weekly during the winter season, on Wednesdays and Sundays. During the more popular summer season, flights will increase to three times a week, operating also on Tuesdays. Flights to Barcelona are twice weekly this winter, on Mondays and Fridays. For summer 2020, they will increase to four times a week, operating also on Wednesdays and Saturdays. San Francisco to London is available four times a week during winter and daily during peak summer months.

With almost 50 nonstop routes to Europe, Norwegian offers more routes from the U.S. than any other European airline. Norwegian is also the largest foreign airline to serve New York City in terms of passenger numbers, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, as well as in Florida, where it operates from four airports: Fort Lauderdale; Miami; Orlando; and Tampa.

Norwegian recently announced its best-ever quarterly financial results, as well as a new route from Austin to Paris launching next summer and other increased frequencies for summer 2020. This included other Californian routes: Los Angeles-Paris will increase to 10 weekly flights, while Los Angeles to Barcelona, Madrid and Rome will also increase. Moreover, Norwegian also announced its intention to partner with JetBlue, which will become its first U.S. airline partner.
