After celebrating its third anniversary of providing low cost services from London Gatwick, Norwegian Air, along with Visit Austin and Austin Bergstrom International Airport, revealed Austin as a new U.S. route from London Gatwick Airport. Norwegian Air will begin providing the eight-hour flight to Austin beginning March 27, 2018, with one way tickets at £239 and premium tickets at £579. The flight will take off from Barbara Jordan Terminal at 4:20 p.m., landing in London at 7:20 a.m. This flight will be available year round, with three-weekly service in a new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. The aircraft will have inflight entertainment, complimentary meal service, airport lounge access, generous baggage allowance, in a spacious economy cabin with more legroom.

“The new service from Gatwick Airport will provide opportunity for additional visitors connecting from throughout the world and from the U.K.,” says Tom Noonan, president and CEO of Visit Austin. “With year over year increases in visitors from the U.K. and beyond, we anticipate this flight will be very successful. The addition of this route is also a direct reflection of how our city continues to evolve as a premier destination for travelers.”

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
