Norwegian is expanding its network of long-haul services out of Copenhagen and Oslo. From Copenhagen the airline will open three routes in November 2015, to Las Vegas and to Puerto Rico and St. Croix in the Caribbean.
In addition, Norwegian will also offer flights to St. Croix in combination with Puerto Rico. St. Croix is part of the former Danish West Indies, now the U.S. Virgin Islands. A number of towns on St. Croix have Danish names, and the island still has many Danish historic sites.
The new routes will each have one weekly frequency, and the first flights will be in early November. Las Vegas will be a year-round route, while the two new Caribbean destinations will be winter-only destinations.
