NEW WINDSOR – Norwegian Air, which will begin nonstop service between
Stewart Airport and Europe later this year, Tuesday announced its fifth
The Newburgh service, which begins this summer, was initially announced
to serve Dublin and Shannon in Ireland, and Belfast in Northern Ireland
beginning on July 1. Service to Edinburgh in Scotland begins on June 15.
Now, the airline announced it will fly between Stewart and Bergen, on the west coast of Norway. Bergen is a gateway to the iconic fjords. A new air terminal will be ready in mid-August with flights across the Atlantic aboard new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.
Those twice weekly flights will begin on July 2 and operate seasonally during the summer with starting fares as low as $89 one-way including taxes.
Orange County Tourism Director Susan Hawvermale said the European service will mean a new experience for visitors to the Hudson Valley.
“So many Europeans who come to the United States mainly come through New York City and having an alternate airport is really a good thing,” Hawvermale said. “The reason why is because many of them have been to New York City before and now they are looking for a more rural experience. They want to see how people live in the countryside. So coming into Stewart Airport and being able to travel through the Hudson Valley really expands our tourism product.”
Norwegian will also fly to Bergen from T.F. Green Airport in Providence, Rhode Island.
