Cork Airport is reinstating its link with Boston Providence, Rhode Island, courtesy of Norwegian Airlines for summer 2019. The summer schedule will commence in April and run through to October.
“We welcome the Cork to Boston Providence route announcement for 2019 coming, just as we celebrate the first year of this significant and successful service,” said Kevin Cullinane, head of communications at Cork Airport.
Norwegian launched Cork Airport’s first nonstop transatlantic flight to Boston in July last year, using its B737 MAX jets.
Although demand on this route hasn’t proved so popular during the winter months – causing Norwegian to cancel its flights from Cork and Shannon to Providence, Rhode Island, from November to March – there is huge demand in both directions during the summer months.
Cullinane added that 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.”
“This route also offers affordable transatlantic travel for those travelling to the east coast of America to experience the magnificent US summer holiday destinations such as Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.”
Describing Norwegian’s aircraft as “modern and spacious with unrivalled service,” Thomas Ramdahl, CCO Norwegian, said “this is a great time to book affordable flights to the US.”
