Shannon Airport Welcomes Norwegian Service Expansion

Shannon Airport has welcomed the news that Norwegian Air International is to expand its 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, 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.

Welcoming the announcement, Andrew Murphy, Shannon Airport Managing Director said: “This is excellent news for Shannon and excellent news for tourism on the Wild Atlantic Way and wider region that we serve. This announcement clearly demonstrates Norwegian’s commitment at Shannon and results in an increase of over 200 per cent in capacity by the airline in 2018.”
