If there was ever an airline to watch, I’d say that Norwegian might be the one at this moment. With plans to open two bases in the United States, start domestic Argentinian service, and develop a ULCC alliance, just to name a few developments, Norwegian is on the path to world domination. Next stop? Ireland!

Per the Irish Examiner, Norwegian is set to announce service from Cork, Ireland within the next few weeks:

A spokesperson for Norwegian told the Irish Examiner the rising costs would have no bearing on plans by its subsidiary Norwegian Air International to fly from Cork to New England from July and that the finalised routes would be announced in the coming weeks.

While we can speculate the the first two routes to Cork will be Newburgh, NY (SWF) and Providence, RI (PVD), a tweet from the Cork Airport indicates that Providence/Boston looks to be the first transatlantic route. There’s also a line to Reykjavik, Iceland which would be an interesting route for Norwegian (ULCC alliance with WOW?), but it could also just be highlighting WOW’s new service to Cork, set to commence in May.

Whatever the route, this will be monumental for Cork Airport, as they’ve been working towards a transatlantic route for the past 50 year! Talk about playing the long game!
