Our newly launched route to Nagoya has higher take-up than Osaka's launch in 2011. Effect of further depth in Japan”. He separately added: “Also, more one-way purchases for Nagoya, as tourists to Japan opting to fly in from Tokyo or Osaka, and fly out from another city.”

London-Singapore becomes world's longest LCC route as Norwegian enters: Long haul low cost, Part 1
European LCC group Norwegian is to launch service from London Gatwick to Singapore on 28-Sep-2017. London-Singapore will become the longest route in Norwegian’s network – and the longest route by any LCC globally.
London-Singapore is a large market but is currently only served nonstop in both directions by Singapore Airlines (SIA) and British Airways. Norwegian should be able to stimulate new demand and attract passengers who are now flying on competitively priced one stop products.
There will also be opportunities to carry passengers beyond London and Singapore. However, Norwegian will need to rely mainly on end to end traffic.
