Norwegian to increase USA flights from Ireland & Scotland

Norwegian is increasing flights from Edinburgh, Dublin and Shannon airports to the USA during the winter season. The newly added flights will give consumers more affordable choice for travel to the US east coast and are available to book now. The airline says that this will add 90,000 seats to USA from Dublin, Shannon & Edinburgh, with the focus on boosting services that reflect strong passenger demand. Norwegian airline launched a series of transatlantic routes from Edinburgh, Belfast, Dublin, Cork and Shannon last summer to the US east coast. Norwegian operates brand new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft with up to 189 seats to service the routes which serve smaller airports on the US east coast. These airports give passengers more affordable access to the New York and Boston areas in addition to tourist attractions in New England.


From Dublin Airport, Norwegian will continue its increased summer schedule to New York Stewart International Airport and Providence into the winter season with double daily services and double daily services respectively. At Shannon Airport, Norwegian will deliver a daily service to New York Stewart International Airport this winter as the carrier increases its flights from two a week from the previous winter. Meanwhile at Edinburgh Airport, the airline will maintain daily transatlantic flights at Edinburgh Airport this winter by increasing the New York route to a daily service, up from three flights a week in the previous winter. From 28th October, Norwegian will commence this increased winter 2018 schedule. Source: norwegian.com
