FLIGHTS can now be booked on Norwegian’s Cork to Boston/Providence service for summer 2019, easing fears that the route could be axed.
The airline has confirmed that tickets can be bought for the 2019 season, with flights operating again on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Norwegian announced earlier this year that the flights would be suspended for the winter months, fuelling fears that the route could be axed. However, details of the 2019 summer schedule were released yesterday, commencing in April and running through to October.
Kevin Cullinane, Head of Communications at Cork Airport said: “We welcome the Cork to Boston Providence route announcement for summer 2019, coming just as we celebrate the first year of this significant and successful service. Tourism Ireland recently confirmed an increase of 12.4% of inbound passengers from North America in the first five months of 2018.
"With Cork Airport being uniquely placed at the beginning of both the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East, this route has made it even easier for US visitors to come to the south of Ireland and experience all it has to offer.”
