Norwegian, the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline, has launched its first nonstop transatlantic flight from Stewart International Airport to Edinburgh Airport in Scotland. This is the first of five routes that will operate from the airport. The airline’s other routes to Ireland, Northern Ireland and Norway will be opened in July.
To quote Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer, “Four years ago, Norwegian’s low-cost long-haul flights revolutionized transatlantic travel, and we are pleased to pave the way once more with our long-anticipated service from Stewart International Airport to several destinations in Europe. Serving two destinations from New York allow us to reinforce our commitment to U.S. growth by bringing more tourists to the region and creating even more American jobs.”
Port Authority Executive Director Pat Foye said, “Today’s inaugural Norwegian flight signifies the launch of a new era that will be transformative for Stewart International Airport and the Mid-Hudson Valley region in terms of jobs, tourism, and economic development. The airport’s connection to new international destinations offers exciting opportunities for our customers and growth for the airport and the region.”
Norwegian’s new flights to Edinburgh will operate daily during the summer and three times per week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays) during the winter with rates currently available at Norwegian.com/us for as low as $99one-way, including taxes.
