Shannon Airport announced that Norwegian Air International is to expand their Boston and New York services to Shannon for 2018. The airline, which commenced services at Shannon in July last year, is to double its frequency from two to four flights a week on its service to Providence Green Airport, Rhode Island, which is just over one hour from Boston. In addition, it is adding an extra service to Stewart International Airport, Orange County, just 90 minutes from New York, increasing from two to three flights a week. The extra services will kick-in from March 2018.


Declan Power (Head of Aviation Development at Shannon Airport) said: “We’ve always had confidence in our transatlantic offering and the decision by Norwegian is further validation of the demand for transatlantic services to Shannon and a clear endorsement of popularity and success of the these services. The increased capacity creates an unprecedented line-up from Shannon Airport, with six airlines operating 90 flights a week to seven destinations.”


Thomas Ramdahl (Norwegian Chief Commercial Officer) said: “Our new transatlantic routes from Ireland have made a strong start and we are delighted to add extra services at Shannon where our affordable flights to the US have proved particularly popular with passengers. These additional flights will give Irish passengers even more choice and are another important step in our plans for continued growth in Ireland.”
