Norwegian Air Shuttle price query

I plan to fly from Krakow to Copenhagen in September, and as far as I can see Norwegian is the only airline that offers a direct flight. But I'm puzzled about the quoted price (this comes up on E-dreams, BYOjet as well as on the airline's own website) For the flight I want (non-stop - leaves at 15.25 and arrives 16.55) the quoted 'Lowfare' price is 31.6 Euros (plus of course additional charges for baggage etc) but their other flights, which have a stopover, are around 200 Euros or more. Am I missing something? Why is it so much cheaper?

Would be wary about booking on a third party website.

Go directly for piece of mind at the very least.

No additional landing and airport costs to factor in

The other flights are a "last option" if you cannot get on the direct flight and must get to your destination...for the desperate only.

I see it quite often on sites for say SYD/MEL run via Canberra. During peak you would be lucky to get on the direct and have to wait ages...whereas you would get home quicker if you took the long way home.

Norwegian are a point-to-point service, therefore if you fly direct, their prices are relatively cheap.

If you fly indirect (via their hub at Oslo) you are paying for 2 seperate flights, hence the big difference in Price.
