Norwegian to fly from Bradley to Edinburgh

Starting in June, the Norwegian low-priced carrier will operate flights from its bases in Newburgh, New York; Hartford, Connecticut; and Providence, Rhode Island to destinations in Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Scotland using the airline's new Boeing 737MAX 8 airplanes.

There also will be flights to Edinburgh from Connecticut's Bradley International Airport, near Hartford. At TF Green, the Airline will keep two Boeing 737 Max airliners. We look forward to working closely with Norwegian to maximise the promotion of these new routes from NY and Providence.

Norwegian's CEO Bjorn Kjos is bullish about the new flights: " Our new, non-stop service will enable tens of thousands of new travellers to fly between the continents much more affordably.

Passengers can save by bundling a seat reservation, pre-ordering a meal service (including alcoholic beverages) and pre-paying for checked bags. Norwegian does not charge customers for carry-on luggage.

Another month, another low-priced airline offering rock-bottom fares to Europe. These flights will certainly help boost tourism from the U.S. and offer more choice for potential travelers living in the Northeast. "It's the lowest affordable transatlantic nonstop fares ever available in America", he said.

Tickets are on sale now at Norwegian.com/us, with fares from $65 one-way, including taxes. "They can now get low fares and explore Europe".

Service to Belfast from Stewart International Airport will be thrice weekly during summer and twice weekly during winter as of July 1; twice weekly from Providence as of July 2 during summer.

The service includes flights to Cork, Dublin and Shannon airports in Ireland, and to Belfast in Northern Ireland. Once the introductory phase is over, flights will start at $99.

This is the first time in Cork Airport's history that it will offer flights to the United States. "There are those who don't want to fly out of JFK or Boston Logan to Europe".

Norwegian Air's network expansion in the us was approved by the Obama Administration, but has been protested by established USA airlines including American, United, and Delta.

"We also operate an all-Boeing fleet of more than 120 Boeing aircraft, with another 120 on order generating further economic benefits and jobs in the USA".

The airline has hailed the statement as "a correct understanding" of the benefits its proposed Irish-US services will offer.

"It's a big catchment area that these three airports cover", Sande said.

Norwegian's Irish operation has been a great point of controversy over the past few years.

NAI official Stuart Buss said the new routes represent a win-win situation for Ireland, Europe and the US.

The announcement follows a healthy increase in revenue for the airline a year ago - rising 16 percent to 26 billion Norwegian crowns ($3.12 billion, 2.95 billion euros), and enabling the carrier to place orders for 260 aircraft from Boeing and Airbus.

Niall McCarthy, managing director at Cork Airport, said it had been a long and challenging journey to secure the services and the licences necessary to commence a transatlantic route. "They will probably sell out by the end of the day". "People can also go to other cities like London, Oslo, Rome and Barcelona".

Travel between the USA and Europe isn't exactly cheap. You could jump on the round-trip tickets to Costa Rica for under $200, the $105 round-trip tickets to Puerto Rico, or the American Airlines tickets that you can score for cheaper than you'd expect. Last year revenue rose 16 percent to 26 billion Norwegian crowns ($3.12 billion) and the company has placed orders for 260 aircraft from Boeing (BA.N) and Airbus (AIR.PA), which it will receive over a period of several years.

NAI was originally granted a foreign carrier permit by the Department two years ago, but had been unable to commence operations from Cork due to fierce opposition from United States trade unions and politicians on labour grounds - who claimed the service would undermine U.S. crew and ground handler contracts.
