Norse Atlantic setting up US HQ in Fort Lauderdale and other Florida aviation news

This past week The South Florida Business Journal reported that the new transatlantic startup Norse Atlantic will base it US operations in Fort Lauderdale while also serving the city with nonstop flights to Oslo, London and Paris.

All three routes were served recently but are now un-served. Fort Lauderdale has been without Paris or Oslo nonstop service since Norwegian Air Shuttle pulled transatlantic service during COVID’s early months and without London service since British Airways withdrew Fort Lauderdale flights in the Fall of 2019.

Avelo is increasing New Haven-Fort Lauderdale/West Palm Beach nonstops to six roundtrips to each south Florida airport. Neither service has begun yet so advance bookings must be excellent.

Frontier is pulling off Washington(Dulles)-Orlando flights. They’ve pulled on to and off this route multiple times since 2014 so perhaps they will be back again.

Spirit is ending Miami-Port-au-Prince nonstops.

Sun Country has extended Jacksonville-Minneapolis/St Paul service into the summer.

WestJet is halving the scheduled number of Fort Lauderdale-Toronto runs in January and completely zeroing out flights from Ottawa and Halifax to Orlando.
