Already serving most of Europe’s top destinations, Athens is an exciting addition to our transatlantic route network,” said Matthew Wood, Senior Vice President of Commercial Long Haul and New Markets for Norwegian.
“Greece is a top holiday destination and Norwegian’s exciting announcement allows for more Americans to experience all the magic that Greece has to offer. This news is a response to our call for enhancing air connectivity between Greece and the United States and we thank Norwegian for answering the demand. We welcome Norwegian to Greece and expect this new route to contribute in the growing numbers of tourists to our country,” said Elena Kountoura, the Minister of Tourism of the Hellenic Republic.
