Rhodes will be the fifth Greek island Norwegian serves direct from London Gatwick, including Corfu, Crete, Kefalonia, and Santorini.

In addition to the new weekly service to Rhodes, Norwegian is also increasing frequency to a number of popular destinations in the Mediterranean and Scandinavia. Passengers travelling from Gatwick airport will be able to take advantage of 17 additional flights from 26 March until 28 October.

Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer for Norwegian, said: “With a new direct route to Rhodes and increased services to the Mediterranean and Scandinavia, we are offering UK passengers even more choice and lower fares than ever before to popular European destinations from London Gatwick. Rhodes is a fantastic addition to our growing UK route network and with affordable fares from £29.90 one way, we expect Brits to flock to the Greek island this summer.”

Award winning airline Norwegian now serves over 40 business and leisure summer destinations from London Gatwick, Manchester, Edinburgh and Birmingham. Short-haul flights are operated by a fleet of brand new Boeing 737 aircraft that will keep passengers connected in the skies with free inflight Wi-Fi.
