Norwegian has confirmed its will offer a US preclearance service for customers taking its forthcoming transatlantic flights from Dublin and Shannon.

The carrier will launch flights from both airports to Stewart International (for New York) and TF Green airport in Providence (for Boston) in July.

Dublin and Shannon both have facilities for US preclearance, enabling passengers to undertake all US inspections prior to departure. This allows them to be treated as domestic arrivals, avoiding the often lengthy immigration queues at US airports.

Norwegian flights will be eligible for this service – more information is available on the carrier’s website here.

In addition Norwegian says a new US$20 coach shuttle service between Stewart International and “central New York City” has been timed to meet Norwegian’s arrivals. Operated by Coach USA, the service features reclining seats, wifi and in-seat power.
