Norwegian's Plans for Flights to Puerto Rico Leak Ahead of Time

Last week, Norwegian launched a competition on their Facebook page asking their fans to guess which new destination they are planning to launch, with departured from London Gatwick, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo. Using Google Reverse Image Search, it was quite easy to find out that the image used on the Norwegian Facebook post comes from the official Barbados tourism board. This resulted in many media reports of a new route to Barbados. However, it now turns out that Nowegian are planning to launch flights to Puerto Rico, rather than Barbados. Norwegian had intented to announce the new route last Thursday, but due to the German Wings tragedy, the airline decided to postpone the announcement until after Easter.

Norwegian‘s marketing team, however, failed to pull scheduled TV ads in time. TV ads promoting the new flights to San Juan, Puerto Rico aired on TLC last week ahead of the official company announcement. We expect Norwegian to officially announce when the new route to San Juan, Puerto Rico and the previously leaked route to Las Vegas will go on sale, some time after the April Bank Holiday. We will keep you posted as this story develops.

UPDATE 21/4/2015

The new routes were announced at a press conference held in Copenhagen today.
