Norwegian has reshuffled its peak-season schedule to accommodate plans to introduce its new Boeing B737 MAX 8 on the Edinburgh – Oslo route. Originally planned to start in early 2018, it will now begin on 1 June.
The carrier says it will operate the route daily until 28 October with the schedule reducing to four a week from 29 October. The service will also change from evening to daytime flights.
Norwegian has also confirmed plans for three new direct routes between Edinburgh and the US east coast with flights to and from the greater New York, Boston and New England areas (see also BTN 27 February).
The routes will also be operated by the B737 serving smaller US airports with lower landing charges.
From 15 June, Norwegian will launch a daily service to Stewart International Airport in New York State, about 90min from New York City. On the following day, the airline will start operating four flights a week to Providence, Rhode Island. And on 17 June, it will run three flights a week to Bradley International Airport in Connecticut.
Besides Oslo, Norwegian already flies from Edinburgh to five other destinations – Copenhagen, Stockholm, Barcelona, Tenerife and Malaga.
