Norwegian has announced an expanded 2019 summer schedule that includes 37 per cent more flights to the US and Canada from its bases in Ireland.

The new schedule features 40 weekly flights to the US east coast and Ontario from 31 March. The services will be operated by the low-cost carrier’s new B737 MAX aircraft, which offers 189 seats that are being upgraded to slimline versions that Norwegian says provides more personal space for passengers.

From Dublin, Norwegian will operate a daily service to Toronto’s Hamilton airport – its first Canadian connection from Ireland – and Providence near Boston (up from five flights per week), as well as double-daily flights to New York’s Stewart airport.

Meanwhile, the airline will operate five flights per week to New York from Shannon, as well as four per week to Providence.

Finally, Norwegian will offer three flights per week between Cork and Providence.

Thomas Ramdahl, CCO at Norwegian, said: “We are excited to increase our transatlantic flights next summer to meet demand and continue expanding our presence in Ireland. The market presents a clear opportunity to deliver more high-quality flights at lower fares for consumers on both side of the Atlantic.”
