Norwegian Air to stop flights from Belfast to US
« on: September 24, 2018, 03:52:02 PM »
Low-cost carrier Norwegian Air is to stop direct flights between Northern Ireland and the US from next month.

The company said it was down to "customer demand".

When this was originally announced a few months back,I took it to mean they were suspending the flights from/to Belfast over the winter,but they would resume for next spring.
Either I picked it up wrongly,or they have moved the goal posts and are not returning to BFS.

It seems rather odd to offer flights from both Shannon and Cork when they are fairly close to each other,the axe will probably fall on  one of those as well at some point.
