Norwegian to Launch 10 New Routes from U.K., Ireland to U.S. This Summer
Norwegian Air announced details of its transatlantic expansion plans following the approval for the carrier’s Irish subsidiary to operate flights to and from the United States last December. The permit allows Norwegian Air International to operate flights to the United States from Ireland and other parts of the European Union.
This summer, the airline plans to begin ten new routes from the United Kingdom and Ireland to the East Coast of the United States.
Beginning June 15, the carrier will offer service from Edinburgh to New York’s Stewart International Airport, Providence, Rhode Island’s T.F. Green Airport, and Connecticut’s Bradley International Airport. Service to New York will be daily, flights to Providence will operate four times a week, and service to Connecticut will be offered three times a week.
These will be followed by service from Belfast to both Providence and Stewart International on July 1. Norwegian will operate its Belfast-Providence route two times a week, and will offer three weekly flights to Stewart International.
Also on July 1, the airline will begin thrice weekly service from Cork to Providence. The airline will also on that date begin twice weekly service from Shannon to both Providence and Stewart International, as well as five weekly flights between Dublin and Providence, and daily Dublin-Stewart International service.
Norwegian will operate the new routes using Boeing 737 Max aircraft, equipped with an all coach cabin. As is the case on other Norwegian aircraft, the 737s will feature a Scandinavian hero on the tail.
