NEW YORK (FEBRUARY 26, 2018) – Norwegian, the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and Airline of the Year 2017, today announced that it is doubling service from Stewart International Airport to Dublin Airport beginning April 26, 2018. Norwegian first launched transatlantic flights from New York to Dublin last summer using brand new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft offering up to 189 seats.
Travelers now have more choice and flexibility for affordable travel to Ireland as the extra flights are now available from $99 one-way at www.norwegian.com/us. With two Dublin departures each day, passengers have the choice of a day flight, which departs Stewart International Airport at 12:25 pm, or an evening flight, which departs Stewart International Airport at 8:30 pm.
“More than 130,000 passengers have flown Norwegian between the United States and Ireland since we launched the service last July, and today marks our continued expansion by introducing twice-daily flights between New York and Dublin,” Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer at Norwegian said. “With strong demand for our high-quality flights in brand new aircraft, it was naturally our next move to increase capacity to Ireland even further. We’re making it easier for Americans to access Ireland and beyond at a much better value.”
Upon arrival at Stewart International Airport, passengers have the option of direct shuttle bus service to Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan. Bus arrivals and departures are timed to meet Norwegian’s flights from the airport.
Upcoming launches from the U.S. include: New York/Newark to Paris (February 28); Chicago to London (March 25); Austin to London (Mach 27); Denver to Paris (April 9); Oakland/San Francisco to Paris (April 10); Boston to Paris (May 2); New York/JFK to Amsterdam (May 7); Los Angeles to Milan (June 18); Los Angeles to Madrid (July 16); and New York/JFK to Madrid (July 18).
Passengers on all of Norwegian’s routes are eligible to join Norwegian Reward, the airline’s frequent flyer program and can earn CashPoints every time they fly, stay at a hotel or drive a rental car.
