Norwegian Air To Move Forward With Base At Dublin Airport
Despite announcing its intention to cut services from Cork and Shannon to Providence, Rhode Island, from October to March 2019 due to low demand, Norwegian Air has asserted that it still plans to establish a base at Dublin Airport.
A spokesperson for the airline stated, "Norwegian opened a new pilot base in Dublin last year and has since created a cabin crew base, with more than 40 cabin crew positions recruited for the Dublin base so far."
The spokesperson also said that Norwegian Air is continuing to contemplate commencing services from Cork to New York state's Stewart International Airport. However, the airline's current primary objective is to boost the performance of the Providence route.
