Shannon Airport has today welcomed the passing of a key stage in the application process to the US Department of Transportation by Norwegian Airlines for permits to operate services from Irish airports, including Shannon, to the US.
A Shannon Airport spokesperson said: “The decision by the US authorities to give preliminary approval for permits for Norwegian International Airlines Limited brings us one step closer to Shannon having a new carrier on its runway. We now have to wait for a 21 day period for final submissions on this matter, with a decision to follow shortly after this.
“Having commenced discussions with the airline in 2014 and subsequently agreed a deal pending permit approval, we are hopeful of a positive outcome to this application and realising a really excellent opportunity for Shannon to strengthen its transatlantic operations.”
