One of the most popular airlines today with consumers is Norwegian Airlines. The airline is well known with consumers for offering comfortable service, in a relatively new airplane cabin, from secondary airports in the United States to destinations all over the world. They offer some year round flight options, but are also known to offer a range of chartered flights to certain destinations are certain times of the year to match demand.
While Norwegian Airlines has already offered a range of different flight options, it appears that they are now set to offer a new flight option to customers located in California (http://www.anna.aero/2017/04/03/norwegian-now-links-copenhagen-oakland/). The airline just announced that later this year it will be offering a new long-haul service from Oakland, California directly into Copenhagen. The new flight option will be available all year long, but will only have two direct flights each way per week. Flights will take place on Tuesdays and Saturdays eve week.
This will be only the latest flight option to and from Copenhagen offered by the airline. The airline currently has nine additional long-haul options offering directly flights to and from the United States and other key cities across the world. The other long-haul options include Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, New York, Los Angeles, Bangkok, and San Juan.
Those that are looking to travel to and from Europe from the Bay Area now have a lot of different options. While San Francisco has offered direct flights for years, Oakland has seen a big resurgence due to the airline. Those that want to fly out of the airport to Europe can now get direct flights into a number of different cities including Copenhagen, London, Oslo, and Stockholm. Due to the increased demand for flights into and out of the area, Norwegian Airlines is actively considering other airline and route options as well. At this point, Norwegian Airlines does not face any direct competition for these strategic flights, but there is a good chance that some of the other major airlines around the world will look for ways to compete with the growing and popular airline.
