Norwegian Air announced an end to all its flights from North America to Dublin, Cork, and Shannon.

The airline cited the ongoing issues with the grounding of Boeing’s troubled 737 Max aircraft as a major factor in the decision.

“As the airline moves from growth to profitability, we have conducted a comprehensive review of our transatlantic operations between Ireland and North America and considering the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, we have concluded that these routes are no longer commercially viable,” said Matthew Wood, the airline’s senior vice president for long-haul service.

The airline said it would offer other options to customers booked to Ireland on September 15 or later including a full refund.  It is also working with its pilots and cabin crew to avoid layoffs.

The change does not affect service that links Dublin to Oslo, Stockholm, and Copenhagen.

The announcement means that Norwegian will no longer operate from New York Stewart International Airport, T.F. Green Airport in Providence, Rhode Island, and John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport in Ontario, Canada.
