Green Airport to Stewart Airport. Customers will receive notifications and updates via SMS, on our website and through customer care services to ensure they are informed of the latest information.

Norwegian would like to apologize to customers affected by this extraordinary situation as we remain committed to ensuring our passengers can continue to travel on Norwegian’s network.

The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner has 338 seats, of which 282 are in Economy and 56 are in Premium. Norwegian’s Boeing 737 MAX has 189 seats.
