Norwegian revving up their engines for direct US flights

From the middle of next month you will be able to fly direct from Edinburgh Airport to three destinations on the east coast of the US with Norwegian Airlines. The new flights are targeted at three smaller airports which allows the prices to be kept low.

Edinburgh to Providence – handy for a city break to Boston only a short hop by road, rail or bus or a road trip to Rhode Island. Cape Cod is one of our favourite summer destinations with its wonderful beaches and seafood restaurants.

Edinburgh to Stewart International   This route will take you to New York City with a new bus service from the airport to the heart of Manhattan for only $20 each way. The attractions of New York are well known, but now you can find an easier and cheaper route to the Big Apple direct from Edinburgh.

Edinburgh to Bradley International will offer you all the delights of New England and Connecticut. with a direct flight three times a week.

The train service on the east coast of America means that few places are out of reach once you land. We travelled on the Acela Express from New York to Washington just last month which travels all the way up and down the east coast making your journey very easy indeed. New Haven is one of the stops en route to Boston and it is well known for theatre, art galleries and music. It is home to Yale University and there are fabulous historical and architectural tours on offer.

Norwegian Chief Commercial Officer Thomas Ramdahl said: “Our new routes are not only making transatlantic travel more affordable than ever before, they also offer a perfect gateway for travellers to see some of the finest parts of the US east coast. From the bright city lights of New York and Boston, to the history and natural beauty of New England, these new routes offer something for all passengers.”

 

Norwegian’s new transatlantic routes will launch this summer and will be operated on brand new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. Flights are now on sale from www.norwegian.com

–          Stewart Intl (New York) – daily flights

–          Providence (greater Boston) – 4x weekly flights (Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun)

–          Bradley Intl (New England/Connecticut) – 3x weekly flights (Tues, Thurs, Sat)
