Norwegian has launched a new route from Edinburgh to Tenerife this week as it continues to expand at the airport.

The carrier now operates two flights weekly to the Spanish island, with fares starting from £59.90 one-way.

Flights depart on Thursdays and Saturdays on a new Boeing 737 aircraft which provides free Wi-Fi for all passengers.

The new route means that the airline is adding around 40,000 affordable seats between Scotland and Tenerife over the next year.

Gordon Dewar, chief executive at Edinburgh Airport, said: “This new direct flight from Scotland’s capital to Tenerife is a massive vote of confidence for Edinburgh Airport; Norwegian Airlines shares our commitment to improving connectivity and together we are offering a great new route between Scotland and Tenerife – which has been a favourite holiday destination of Scots for decades."
