Norwegian Air International is continuing with its plans for a Dublin Airport base despite announcing that it would cut services from Cork and Shannon later this year.
The carrier confirmed earlier this week that low demand prompted it to cut its services from Cork and Shannon airports to Providence, Rhode Island, from October to March 2019.
A spokeswoman for the airline said that it was continuing with plans for a base at Dublin Airport, which was announced last year. “Norwegian opened a new pilot base in Dublin last year and has since created a cabin crew base with more than 40 cabin crew positions recruited for the Dublin base so far,” she said. The airline held open days for pilots interested in joining the operation late last year and reported strong interest at the time.
