Norwegian’s 10 new routes



Posted on: 10 Apr 2017

The new services comprise 38 weekly flights from Edinburgh, Belfast, Cork, Shannon and Dublin to smaller airports in the Greater New York, Boston and New England areas.

The airports' ‘significantly lower’ landing charges have enabled Norwegian to offer one-way fares from £69.

From June 15 Norwegian will operate flights from Edinburgh to Stewart International Airport, Providence Airport and Bradley International Airport, serving the New York, Boston and New England areas.

And starting on July 1 are flights from Belfast International to Stewart International and Providence Airport; operations from Cork to Providence; and flights from both Shannon and Dublin to Stewart International and Providence.

All the new routes will be operated by new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

Norwegian CEO Bjorn Kjos says: “We are excited to finally be able to launch services to the U.S. from Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland, and we would like to express a big gratitude for the extensive support from consumer groups, government officials, airports, and the travel and tourism industry on both sides of the Atlantic in our quest to offer affordable transatlantic flights for all.”

Norwegian also flies to eight U.S. cities from Gatwick: Boston, Fort Lauderdale/Miami, Orlando, Vegas, Los Angeles, JFK and Newark (both New York) and Oakland.
