Norwegian is to drop its seasonal flights between Gatwick and Las Vegas this winter.

The route was launched in 2016 and was originally intended to be year round, but the airline suspended the service during the summer months.

At the time, it was alleged that the heat in Las Vegas was causing problems for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner operating the route.

The airline has now confirmed that it will not resume flights to Vegas this winter.

In a statement provided to Business Traveller a spokesperson said: "As Norwegian moves from growth to profitability, we have decided to discontinue our seasonal London-Las Vegas service following a comprehensive review of the route."

Virgin Atlantic recently moved its Las Vegas service from Gatwick to Heathrow. British Airways operates flights to the city from both Gatwick and Heathrow.
