STEWART AIRPORT – Norwegian
Airways, which has been operating five successful European routes from
Stewart International Airport, is modifying two of those routes.

This coming summer the airline will increase from two to three the number
of weekly flights to Shannon, Ireland.

On March 25, its service to Edinburgh, Scotland will be reduced from daily
to four times per week.

Airline spokesman Anders Lindstrom said the reduced Edinburgh service
is not a result of weak performance.

“The Edinburgh frequency reduction is because of the Scottish government’s
postponement of the reduced air passenger tax. Tat reduction was due to
come in 2018 and they have now announced they will postpone it, which
make it difficult for us to have a sustainable route at affordable fares
to our customers,” he told Mid-Hudson News speaking by phone from
Barcelona.
Norwegian Airways also flies from Stewart to Belfast, Northern Ireland,
Dublin, Ireland, and Bergen, Norway.
