Norwegian Set To Increase Services At Shannon Next Summer

Norwegian Air International is to increase its capacity on its Shannon to Stewart Airport, New York, service next summer.

After a strong performance in 2017, its inaugural year, extra flights this summer and a strengthening of services again for the coming winter, the airline has now announced it is to increase its Shannon-Stewart operations from three to five weekly services next summer.

Welcoming the news, Shannon Airport managing director Andrew Murphy said, "Getting Norwegian Air International on board in the first instance was a strong statement about Shannon’s potential and this has most definitely been backed up by this latest increase. We will have nine services in all next summer, five to Stewart and four to Providence, Rhode Island, more than double what we had last year when Norwegian Air International commenced its Shannon operations with four services in total. This is a really strong statement about Shannon Airport and reaffirms its popularity for transatlantic services."
