Norwegian is bringing back the UK’s only direct flights to Puerto Rico from November following a successful first winter season, with fares now available from £159 one-way including taxes.

From November 2, the airline will continue its service to the island’s capital San Juan with twice-weekly direct flights from Gatwick on the airline’s new larger Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

With more than 25,000 seats on sale, these new aircraft offer 18% more seats per flight in two classes – Premium and Economy. With an earlier scheduled arrival time in Puerto Rico from last season, passengers will be able to meet cruise line departures and make flight connections to other Caribbean islands more easily.

Thomas Ramdahl, the carrier's chief commercial officer, said: “With our 787 Dreamliners flying nearly full it’s no surprise Puerto Rico is back by popular demand. This coveted route is the cheapest gateway to the Caribbean and nearly 25,000 British holidaymakers have taken advantage of our affordable flights in comfortable brand new aircraft."

The service will operate throughout the winter season until March 22, 2017.
