A new low-fare scheduled route between Gatwick and Rhodes is being added by Norwegian this summer.

Weekly flights will run from June 17 until October 16 with one-way fares starting at £29.90.

Rhodes will be the fifth Greek island served by the airline from Gatwick, after Corfu, Crete, Kefalonia and Santorini.

Norwegian is also increasing frequency to a number of destinations in the Mediterranean and Scandinavia this summer with an additional 17 flights between March 26 and October 28.

Extra flights will run to Kefalonia, Palma, Chania, Ibiza, Oslo, Aalborg and Stavanger.

The airline’s chief commercial officer, Thomas Ramdahl, said: “With a new direct route to Rhodes and increased services to the Mediterranean and Scandinavia, we are offering UK passengers even more choice and lower fares than ever before to popular European destinations from Gatwick.”
