Norwegian begins weekly service between the two airports – route last served by Air France in 2012.
- Norwegian has restored direct flights between Paris CDG (CDG) and Orlando (MCO), ending a five-year hiatus of services on the city pair. Last flown by Air France three times weekly in September 2012 on 777-200s, Norwegian will operate the 7,234-kilometre sector weekly (Mondays) on its 787-8s. Launched on 31 July, Norwegian now serves four transatlantic routes from CDG, with it already operating to Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles and New York JFK. For Orlando, this also becomes its fourth transatlantic service from the carrier which already connects to the Floridian airport from London Gatwick, Copenhagen and Oslo Gardermoen. According to the US Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), Air France between January and September 2012 carried 68,586 passengers between CDG and Orlando, while last year an estimated 46,000 passengers travelled indirectly between the two cities according to OAG Traffic Analyser data, with the top three connecting airports being Atlanta (19% of transfer traffic), New York JFK (14%) and New York Newark (7.1%).
