Norwegian to Deploy a Boeing 787 Dreamliner to Replace 737 MAX 8 Flights from Providence and Stewart to Dublin

Press release   •   Mar 13, 2019 10:08 EDT

In an effort to minimize the inconvenience of the currently suspended 737 MAX 8 operations, Norwegian will operate a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft on a temporary, daily basis from New York Stewart International Airport (SWF) to Dublin Airport. The airline will deploy the Dreamliner to operate flights in order to provide service to affected customers scheduled to fly from either Providence’s T.F. Green Airport (PVD) in Rhode Island or Stewart to Dublin.

Customers currently booked on flights to Dublin will be rebooked on flights operating the 787-9 Dreamliner. Passengers scheduled to depart from Providence will be accommodated on buses from T.F. 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.
