Norwegian Air To Scale Back Ireland To US Routes
Norwegian Air is planning to cut the number of services it runs between Dublin and New York by half for the winter.
According to The Irish Times, the airline will resume running two daily flights between Dublin and New York at the end of March, while daily flights between Shannon and New York Stewart International Airport will cease on January 12 before resuming on March 31, and Norwegian plans on operating the route exclusively during the summer from 2019 onwards.
Ensuring "A More Successful And Profitable Operation"
Norwegian's head of communications, Anders Lindström, commented, "In order to ensure a more successful and profitable operation, Norwegian will shorten parts of its winter schedule from Newburgh [New York Stewart], during periods when demand is much lower. As a cost disciplined company, we continuously monitor and evaluate our route network and these changes have been made as part of our commitment to reducing costs".
