IMG_2084 (1)Norwegian Air said it plans to add new seasonal transatlantic routes to Chicago and Denver next summer, after quietly announcing plans to discontinue its New York-Rome service in March of 2020.

The Fornebu, Norway-based carrier will add non-stop flights linking Chicago O’Hare International Airport with both Paris Charles de Gaulle and Rome’s Leonardo Di Vinci airports. The Paris service will operate five times per week and will end on October 24, while the Rome service will operate four times a week and end October 19.

“Rome and Paris are great additions to our growing presence in Chicago and Denver and we look forward to welcoming new and existing travelers onboard next summer,” said Matthew Wood, senior vice-president of commercial at Norwegian, said in a statement.

Thrice-weekly service between Denver International Airport and Rome will commence on March 31 and continue through October 19.

Norwegian will operate all three routes with Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft with 35 seats in the Premium premium-economy cabin and 309 seats in coach.  The recliner seats in Premium are 19” in width and have 46” of seat pitch.

With the addition of the new flights, Norwegian will serve four European cities from its base in Chicago, namely Barcelona, London, Paris, and Rome, and three from Denver, which would be London, Paris, and Rome.
