Norwegian Air Shuttle announced new service between New York and Edinburgh, Scotland, next year.

The carrier intends to use newly acquired Boeing 737 Max aircraft on the route. Norwegian will be taking delivery of six such aircraft in April.

The news was first reported, earlier this week, in the Scotsman, Scotland’s national newspaper.

While the carrier has not yet specified any New York-area airports, the airline will likely use airports located outside of the city to take advantage of lower landing fees.

Stewart Airport, located in Newburgh, New York, approximately 60 miles (96 kilometers) north of Manhattan, is a likely candidate, as it is the airport the airline plans to use for flights to Ireland, England, and Norway.

Norwegian currently offers service between New York and multiple cities in Europe including London (Gatwick), Copenhagen, Oslo, Paris, and Stockholm.
