Low-cost carrier Norse has been given the go-ahead by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to operate point-to-point services from Gatwick and US.

Norse began flying between Gatwick and New York in August, with return tickets from £255, via Norway.

An operating licence was issued by the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority last month and confirmation of US authorisation will allow the airline to offer direct flights and expand its route network.

Norse says this could lead to the launch of flights between Gatwick and US locations such as Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando from the end of March 2023.

Norse Chief Executive Bjorn Tore Larsen said: “We are very thankful for the support that we have received on both sides of the Atlantic throughout our application.”
