Norwegian has launched the UK’s cheapest direct flight to the bright lights of Las Vegas, as the carrier continues its rapid growth in Britain.

Twice weekly flights depart Gatwick on a Monday and Thursday, ideal for a weekend break, with fares starting from £179 one-way. All flights will be operated by the airline’s state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft which feature two cabins – Premium and Economy.

Sin City is the carrier’s third long-haul route to launch from Gatwick this year alone, alongside Oakland – San Francisco and Boston that took-off earlier this year.

The airline’s chief commercial officer, Thomas Ramdahl, said: “Our great value fares offer more choice and flexibility for the British public wanting to travel to Nevada on any budget. This year has been our busiest yet at Gatwick with the addition of three new direct transatlantic routes, as well as extra frequency and capacity on our existing network. We look forward to welcoming more passengers on board our low-cost, high quality flights to the US.”

Rossi Ralenkotter, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, said: “We are honoured to expand our valued partnership with Norwegian Airlines in providing outstanding options for travellers in the UK, and throughout Europe, to experience everything Las Vegas has to offer.

“The city welcomed a record-breaking 42.3 million visitors in 2015, with the UK representing our largest overseas market, and we look forward to welcoming additional British travellers to the destination with the addition of this convenient nonstop service.”
