(Not my words) OK, who is up for a trip to London?! Today, Michael B. Hancock, Denver International Airport and Norwegian announced that the airline will begin offering nonstop service from Denver to London/Gatwick beginning Sept. 16, 2017! This is the first time since 2012 that DEN has announced a new foreign-flag carrier. The new service will operate twice a week, on Saturdays and Tuesdays, through Oct. 28. Starting on Nov. 2, the service will increase to three times a week, with an additional flight on Thursdays. The flight is scheduled to arrive at DEN at 12:40 p.m. and depart DEN at 2:40 p.m. It will operate using a Boeing 787-9 with 344 seats, only the second carrier at DEN to operate this aircraft.
(My words): @Ben were we not just talking in our recent cast episode about a new international airline coming to DIA? Well I think it has just been decided! I was speechless when I saw this on Facebook under DIA’s main page. I’m so so so excited I cannot wait to see a new international foreign carrier in Denver. This is almost a birthday present lol. And they will be using the 787-9 only the second carrier to do so at DIA.
Listen to this episode where I discuss with Ben a lot of the future for DEN. We discussed some future Airlines to come but neither of us thought Norwegian.
