Norwegian’s expansion in Europe shows no sign of letting up – and Hamburg continues to be part of that expansion. From June 2014, the Scandinavian airline will be offering a new service between Hamburg and Madrid, with four flights per week from Hamburg Airport to the Spanish capital. Madrid is Norwegian’s sixth destination from Hamburg. The airline began flights from the city to Oslo as long ago as 2005. In October and November, flights to Alicante, Málaga, Tenerife and Gran Canaria were added.
“We genuinely welcome Norwegian’s commitment to Hamburg Airport. Spanish destinations have enormous potential to offer, especially for affordable yet high quality services – the sort of services Norwegian is known for. We are certain that this service will meet with success,” says Michael Eggenschwiler, CEO of Hamburg Airport. And before the Madrid service begins, Norwegian is already increasing the number of flights from Hamburg to Spain each week. From February, the Málaga service will operate four times a week instead of three, and Tenerife will also get an extra flight, bringing the total to three services per week.
The additional services in Hamburg are part of Norwegian’s ongoing expansion in the Spanish market, with new crew bases opening in Tenerife and Madrid, bringing the total number of bases in Spain to five.
“We are opening our new base in Madrid because of the huge demand for direct flights between the Spanish capital and the major cities of Europe,” explains Bjørn Kjos, CEO of Norwegian.
