Airport welcomes nonstop Norwegian flight

Thursday, July 6, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Next spring, the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport will earn the distinction of being the first Texas airport to have a Norwegian Airlines flight. It’ll start running on March 27, 2018. The airline’s CEO, Bjørn Kjos, expressed his excitement about the new partnership and the opportunities it will bring in the future. “This city makes perfect sense as our first entry into the Lone Star state,” he said. “Austin is one of the fastest-growing cities in America, which perfectly fits Norwegian, being the world’s fastest-growing airline. We see great opportunities with our new route, both in terms of lowering trans-Atlantic fares for Austinites and bringing more tourists and business travelers to the region, which will help support thousands of local jobs.”
