Providence, Rhode Island and Newburgh, New York will be the US bases for Norwegian’s new transatlantic flights, pending government approval, USA Today reports.
Norwegian has promised prices as low as $69 one-way on transatlantic flights to such destinations as England, Ireland, Scotland, and possibly Scandinavia.
The discount airline confirmed this week that Providence is the airline’s choice for an alternative New England base to Boston’s busy Logan International Airport.
Stewart International Airport in Newburgh — about 70 miles north of Manhattan — was previously announced as the airline’s pick as the base for its new B737 MAX aircraft in the New York metropolitan area.
Providence’s T.F. Green Airport is a similar distance from Boston.
Both deals must still win approval from the US Department of Transportation. A coalition of US domestic airlines is on record opposing Norwegian’s expansion, and met with President Donald Trump this week to express concerns about competition from international airlines.
