It will soon be easier and cheaper to fly from Las Vegas to London. 

Norse Atlantic Airways is launching a new route from London’s Gatwick Airport to Las Vegas’ Harry Reid International Airport, the airline shared with Travel + Leisure on Thursday. The service will begin on Sept. 12, and operate three times per week.

In a nod to the luck that visitors aim to have when visiting Las Vegas, the flight will operate with Norse’s lucky number seven as flight ‘Z0777’.

The 9-hour and 50-minute direct route will depart Las Vegas at 4:45pm, and arrive in London Gatwick at 10:35am the following day, local time. The flight will operate on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

“We are excited to introduce this new route from London Gatwick to Las Vegas, a unique city that offers unparalleled diversity, boasting an abundance of entertainment, dining, and recreational options to suit every taste,” Norse Atlantic Airways CEO and Founder Bjorn Tore Larsen said in a statement.

The airline is celebrating with one-way introductory fares at $299. The return flight from London to Las Vegas is also discounted, as low as $205. 

The discounted fares are for Norse's Economy Light cabin, which includes only one personal item, and has an added fee for any changes. The airline has a premium cabin available for additional cost, which includes checked bags, priority boarding, and more. 

Travelers should be advised that the flight operates from London's Gatwick Airport, and not London Heathrow. Gatwick provides direct train access to 120 train stations, including London's Victoria station via the Gatwick Express.

With recent events such as Formula 1 Racing, the Super Bowl, and the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Las Vegas has seen a surge in tourism and business travelers. The Las Vegas airport set a new record of 57.6 million passengers in 2023.
