Air Travel: New Flights to Ireland, New Connection Service in Toronto

New aircraft by Norwegian Airlines

This week low-cost carrier Norwegian announced that it is increasing flights to Ireland from North America by 37 percent next summer as part of its 2019 summer schedule. The airline currently operates flights from Dublin, Shannon and Cork airports to New York Stewart International Airport and Providence’s TF-Green Airport in Rhode Island. Last month, Norwegian also announced upcoming service from Hamilton/Toronto to Dublin, commencing March 31, 2019.

All flights are operated on Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. Norwegian’s increased 2019 summer schedule from Ireland has 40 weekly transatlantic departures and is now available to book for travel from March 31, 2019. These include a new daily service to Canada, between Hamilton and Dublin, as well as an increase in flights from Providence, Rhode Island, to Dublin to a daily service. From Stewart, the airline will add an additional daily morning departure on its Dublin route. To Shannon, the airline will offer five flights per week from Stewart and four flights per week from Providence, and to Cork, the airline will continue its seasonal, three times per week service from Providence.

In airport news, this week Toronto Pearson Airport added Star Alliance Connection Service, which assists passengers with tight connections between two Star Alliance member airline flights. Dedicated Connection Service staff use special software to monitor the transfer window for customers with onward flights and, in cases where passengers and checked bags appear in danger of missing a connection, work to consider options to help the customer make the connection or book alternative options before the inbound flight lands.
