Norwegian Air Shuttle is considering starting Paris (Charles De Gaulle) to Fort Lauderdale nonstop flights according to published reports in the French press.  Paris is the most underserved major European city from Florida with nonstop flights only to Miami (on American, XL Airways and Air France) and no service to secondary points in the state. Air France has previously flown to Orlando, Pan Am during one summer flew Tampa-Paris (Orly) nonstop and Fort Lauderdale was close to getting Air France/Delta nonstop service to Paris prior to 9/11.

Crews for Norwegian Air’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner long-haul service are based in Fort Lauderdale, so the routing if it comes to fruition makes sense not only from a perspective of gaining passengers but also from a fleet rotation standpoint.
