Norwegian offers double-daily Dublin-New York flights

Norwegian has doubled the number of flights on its popular Dublin-New York service which will allow for day trips to New York State. The airline first launched transatlantic flights from Dublin to Stewart International Airport in New York State and Providence, Rhode Island, last summer using brand new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft offering up to 189 seats.

From 26 April, Norwegian’s daily nonstop flights from Dublin to New York, will increase to a twice-daily service. The new early morning departure at 8:10 am will offer passengers the earliest flight from Dublin to New York, which lands at 10:30am local time.

Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer at Norwegian said: “More than 130,000 passengers have flown Norwegian between Ireland and the USA since flights commenced last July, and today marks our continued expansion by introducing twice-daily Dublin-New York flights. With strong demand from Irish holidaymakers and business travellers for our high-quality flights in brand new aircraft, it was naturally our next move to increase capacity in Ireland even further.”

Norwegian will also increase the number of transatlantic flights from Shannon. From 27 March, the airline will double its frequency to Providence from two to four flights a week and will add a third weekly flight to Stewart, New York.
