The flights will be serviced by brand new 186-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft as the airline has taken delivery of 11 new 737-800 aircraft this year alone.

Low cost airline Norwegian (IATA: DY ICAO: NAX Callsign: NORSHUTTLE) is continuing its rapid expansion at Manchester Airport (IATA: MAN, ICAO: EGCC) by launching two new routes to the Canary Islands this winter.

From October brand new direct twice weekly flights will take off to Gran Canaria for the winter while nonstop year-round flights to Tenerife launch from 1 November, 2016.

The flights will be serviced by brand new 186-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft as the airline has taken delivery of 11 new 737-800 aircraft this year alone.


Thomas Ramdahl, chief commercial officer at Norwegian said: “This winter is set to get warmer for Manchester as we continue creating even more affordable choices for passengers to Europe’s hottest destinations.

“We’ve already flown 80,000 passengers to and from Manchester this year and our growth will continue into next year thanks to the popularity of our flights. Now the Canary Islands and Spanish mainland are even closer as passengers continue to enjoy our free Wi-Fi and take advantage of our attractive fares and schedules.”

Norwegian, which has already launched three new routes from Manchester this year, will also continue its popular summer flights to the Spanish hotspots of Malaga and Alicante into the winter.

The new routes to the Canary Islands together with existing services to Malaga, Alicante, Oslo, Stockholm and Stavanger means Norwegian will have its busiest ever winter from Manchester, offering more than 65,000 seats and 17 flights per week.


Stephen Turner, commercial director at Manchester Airport said: “We’re delighted that Norwegian is choosing to further expand its operations from Manchester. Gran Canaria and Tenerife are great destinations for winter sun holidays and both are hugely popular with the 22 million people in our catchment area.”
