NORWAY: Norwegian Goes To Canada To Three New Routes
The airline will launch seasonal service from Montréal to the French Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique in late October.
Additionally, Norwegian will launch the only transatlantic flight out of Hamilton International Airport near Toronto, in March 2019, with daily service to Dublin, Ireland.
The airline also announced a new four-weekly service from both Guadeloupe and Martinique to Cayenne in French Guiana.
We are very excited about entering the Canadian market, and provide Canadians with Norwegian’s combination of affordable low fares and award-winning service, whether they are heading to the Caribbean or Europe.
This is only our first step into Canada and as the world’s fastest-growing airline, we look forward to expanding our presence here in the next few years, said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer in a press release.
Norwegian was the first airline in more than 20 years to link both French Caribbean islands to New York City and in these three years, we have seen our operation continue to grow and expand.
We will now be the only airline to connect the French Caribbean with both Canada and the United States, as well as French Guiana, said Thomas Ramdahl.
Winter seasonal service from Montreal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport to Guadeloupe’s Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport will launch on October 29, 2018, and operate three times per week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Flights to Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport will launch on November 1, 2018, and operate three times per week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Launch fares to both cities start as low as $219 CAD one-way, including taxes. Both routes will operate during the winter season until end of March, 2019.
Year-round daily service from John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport to Dublin Airport will launch March 31, 2019. Launch fares start as low as $279 CAD, one-way, including taxes.
Winter seasonal service from Martinique to Cayenne – Félix Eboué Airport Cayenne will launch on October 31, 2018, and operate four times per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Flights from Guadeloupe to Cayenne will launch on November 1, 2018, and operate four times per week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Launch fares from both islands start as low as EUR139, one-way, including taxes.
Norwegian operates one of the world’s youngest fleets. The French Caribbean routes are operated by Boeing 737-800s, while the new transatlantic route will be operated by a brand-new Boeing 737 MAX, which Norwegian was the first airline to operate to/from North America last summer.
Returning existing U.S. winter seasonal routes:

All fares are now available for sale on Norwegian’s Canadian and American websites. Additionally, the website’s Low fare calendar displays the lowest available fares to all of Norwegian’s destinations.
