  • Norwegian to end transatlantic

The Norwegian Air Transatlantic service will discontinue from September 15, 2019.

Norwegian Airlines provides service to nearly 6 million British passengers annually from London's Gatwick airport, Edinburgh and Manchester airports, to 30 global destinations.

It is among dozens of airlines globally who have been impacted by the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX fleet, following two fatal crashes involving the aircraft.

Norwegian announced Tuesday that it is discontinuing transatlantic routes originally operated by the Boeing 737 Max aircraft this September - which includes T.F. Green Airport and multiple locations in the northeast.

NA claimed that there will be no rearrangements to the 46 direct routes which the airline operates with the Dreamliner from the U.S. to Europe.

Norwegian has 134 pilots and crew based at Dublin: 48 pilots and 86 cabin crew.

The company says it is assisting customers to make sure they can still get to their destination by rerouting them onto other Norwegian services.

NA said in a statement that anyone made redundant will be made a "last resort" and that the airline's decision is also being made with the approval of trade unions to ensure that the affect on staff is limited.

The airlines' 80 Dublin-based administrative staff at Norwegian Air International and Norwegian Group's asset company, Arctic Aviation Assets, will not be affected by the route closures.

The airline has requested compensation from Boeing for the grounded planes.

Norwegian Airline was established in 1993 and grew from a small-scale flight in 2002 to Europe's third largest low-cost carrier, as low prices helped it to rapidly expand. "We acknowledge that the grounding of the 737 MAX Jet had a major impact on this decision and Shannon was, among Irish airports, disproportionately affected, as it wiped 120,000 seats off our summer schedule through the suspension of its nine times weekly services from Shannon to Stewart and Providence", she said.
