Norwegian drops flights from Belfast and Edinburgh as it attempts to find a path to profitability

In a cull of presumably unprofitable routes, Norwegian has dropped all long-haul flights from Belfast and Edinburgh.

Flights from Belfast to New York and Boston will end on 27th October.  Despite the lack of Air Passenger Duty on transatlantic flights from Belfast, the route suffered from a low frequency and the use of the remote Stewart airport for New York and Providence for Boston.

Norwegian drops Belfast and Edinburgh

Flights from Edinburgh to Stewart will end in March.  The Boston/Providence service was already marked for closure from October.  Ironically, the airline blamed the failure of the Scottish Parliament to cut Air Passenger Duty as a factor in its withdrawal – even though the APD-free Belfast services are also ending.

    Amazon try to get me to convert but they do admit that if you do, then the consumer protection you enjoy as an individual will no longer apply !

    You may want to consider that before switching !
