Norwegian Air has announced that it will begin operating its Shannon to New York Stewart International Airport service on a daily basis from October 28, 2018.
Welcoming the announcement, Shannon Airport managing director Andrew Murphy said, “This expanded service will give our passengers more choice and opens up exciting opportunities for Irish people to explore amazing parts of the states and for more US visitors to explore our Wild Atlantic Way. We look forward to working closely with Norwegian to ensure the success of the expanded service. It clearly demonstrates Norwegian’s commitment at Shannon, and will bring our transatlantic capacity to 565,000 seats.”
Meanwhile, Declan Power, head of aviation development at Shannon Airport, asserted, “2018 is set to be a bumper year for passenger choice on the transatlantic with services from Shannon Airport to New York JFK, New York Stewart International, Newark, Boston, Philadelphia, Providence and Toronto, and all of the onward global connections from these airports.”
