Yesterday (Thursday), Norwegian announced 10 new transatlantic routes from the UK and Ireland. These will all be operated with the airline’s new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, and will total up to 38 new weekly flights from Cork, Shannon, Dublin, Belfast and Edinburgh.

The airline is focusing on smaller US airports, which have significantly lower landing fees. This means they will be able to offer flights as low as €69/£69. The airline will serve Stewart International Airport, Bradley Airport and Providence International Airport. This is an addition to the region where the airline already serves New York-JFK, Boston Logan Airport, and Newark Liberty starting later this year.

The new flights are already out on Norwegian’s websites. The first flights will start in May, with the remainder during the summer (June/July). Flights schedule is below.

Norwegian CEO Bjorn Kjos said: “We are pleased to announce our new highly-anticipated transatlantic routes. Our new, non-stop service will enable tens of thousands of new travellers to fly between the continents much more affordably. Norwegian’s latest transatlantic offering is not only great news for the traveling public, but also for the local U.S, Irish and UK economies as we will bring more tourists that will increase spending, supporting thousands of local jobs.

“We are excited to finally be able to launch services to the US 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.”
