The Paris long-haul services to New York, Los Angeles and Fort Lauderdale were announced in February and will launch in July, increasing the company’s overseas routes to 34 from today’s 31.

“The start of the sales in Paris has been better than when we launched long-haul in London. Better than expected. We are very pleased with the sales,” investor relations chief Tore Oestby told a conference in Oslo on Thursday.
