Norwegian Air Is Offering New US- Europe Ticket Fares $65 Each Way

The airline had signalled intentions to begin flights from Cork to America - today, it announced 12 flights a week from Dublin, six from Belfast, four from Shannon and three from Cork.

However, these flights are part of a flash sale that closes at 11pm tomorrow.

In total, Norwegian will launch 10 new routes with 38 new weekly transatlantic flights this summer. Ireland and Scotland to small U.S. airports The company will fly from airports in Belfast, Northern Ireland; Cork, Dublin and Shannon in the Republic of Ireland; and Edinburgh, Scotland.

According to USA Today, "overseas taxes can add the equivalent of up to $200 on Norwegian's US -bound flights".

Norwegian is betting that Stewart is near enough to New York City and northern New Jersey to lure budget-minded travelers, while Providence and Hartford would draw suburban Bostonians and CT residents.

The airline will launch 19 weekly flights from Ireland serving the United States east coast.

The airline's chief executive Bjorn Kjos said: "Norwegian is shaking up transatlantic travel once again with ground-breaking fares and never before seen routes". "We are hugely grateful for this continued support and are delighted to finally unveil our plans", he said.

The burgeoning competition on transatlantic routes has also prompted action by more established European airlines. "We worked with governments on both sides of the Atlantic to ensure we had a proper number of tickets", he said, noting that "a few thousand" will be available starting today.

"What the other airlines and unions are saying are alternative facts and fake news", Sande said.

The Irish-registered airline's parent, Norwegian Air Shuttle, plans to use it to offer low-priced services between Europe, the United States and Asia.

It will also operate a route to its new flight crew bases at Rhode Island's TF Green Airport and Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, New York. Their low-priced fares might start a transatlantic price war between the airline businesses.

"Availability of the fares advertised for each scheduled flight is extremely limited", Norwegian warns customers on its website.

Meanwhile, Housing Minister Simon Coveney described the decision as "a landmark development" for Cork.

"There has been a real unified effort to try and find airline partners who would take a risk on this route and make it happen", he said.

CEO Niall Gibbons says they're critical for achieving growth in inbound tourism.

Norwegian is Europe's third-largest low-priced carrier, carrying 30 million passengers annually to more than 140 global destinations.
