Norwegian to discontinue Edinburgh and Belfast service from New York Stewart International Airport

    Norwegian plans to discontinue service to Edinburgh and Belfast from New York Stewart International Airport, effective 29-Mar-2019 (Business Traveller/The Scotsman/Daily Business/Daily Freeman, 21-Sep-2018). Norwegian director of communications Anders Lindstrom commented on the decision to discontinue Edinburgh service, stating: “Our affordable US flights were launched with the prospect of a reduction in air passenger taxes that was unfortunately postponed by the Scottish Government. This has forced us to fully withdraw our trans Atlantic services to/from Edinburgh as it would not be a sustainable operation”.
