Norwegian's transatlantic expansion will include 10 new
routes with 38 weekly flights between smaller airports in the Northeastern U.S.
and Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland. The routes come after a years-long
attempt by Norwegian Air Shuttle's Irish subsidiary to get permission from
the U.S. Department of Transportation to fly to the U.S. The low-cost carrier
will use Boeing 737 Max aircraft and has priced its fares as low as £69 on the
already competitive transatlantic market.
