AUSTIN, TX—Visit Austin, Norwegian Air and Austin Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA) today announced Austin as one of two new U.S. routes from London Gatwick Airport.
“The new service from Gatwick Airport will provide opportunity for additional visitors connecting from throughout the world and from the U.K.,” said Tom Noonan, President and CEO of Visit Austin. “With year-over-year increases in visitors from the U.K. and beyond, we anticipate this flight will be very successful. ”
In March 2018, Norwegian will begin flights to Austin with a new year-round, three-weekly service to ABIA. The eight-hour flight will depart from Barbara Jordan Terminal at 4:20 p.m. and arrive in London at 7:20a.m.
Visit Austin is the official destination marketing and sales organization for the City of Austin. Recently featured in Facilities & Destinations magazine, its convention center was a 2017 winner of the publication’s Prime Site Award. The new routes will add to the city’s marketability as a premier business and leisure destination.
