Norwegian US plans

US pre-clearance facilities at Dublin and Shannon airports and a shuttle service into New York are to be made available to passengers on Norwegian when the airline begins its new low-cost transatlantic flights from Ireland to the US East Coast in July.

The carrier is starting the services featuring airports in the US that it says offer good access into New York, Boston and New England but carry significantly lower landing charges.

From Dublin and Shannon, the Norwegian flights will use Stewart International Airport in New York State and Providence Airport, a gateway into Boston and New England. Cork will see its first ever transatlantic flights with a service to Providence.

The pre-clearance facility allows passengers to have all US inspections done before departure so when they land in the US they are treated as domestic arrivals and can avoid immigration queues, collect their bags and go. 

Norwegian has also confirmed a new direct shuttle service from Stewart International Airport into New York City operated by Coach USA and timed to meet the airline’s flight arrivals.

The journey to central Manhattan will cost $20. Coaches include spacious reclining seats, wi-fi and in-seat power. Tickets are bookable in advance via the Stewart Airport Express website.
