Mar 25, 2019


In response to the suspension of Boeing 737 MAX operations by European aviation authorities, Norwegian has provided further information to customers booked to travel from Cork between April 2 and April 9 next.

Norwegian has worked continuously since the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX to ensure that customers travel plans can continue with minimal disruption. The airline has re-routed customers and offered passengers the chance to rebook or receive a full refund free of charge if they no longer wish to travel. The airline is also combining flights and reallocating aircraft within its own network to keep cancellations to a minimum and minimise inconvenience for its customers.

From April 2, Norwegian will temporarily operate services from Dublin Airport using a Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

The ETOPS-certified 737-800 will also be used on flights between Dublin and Providence on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Affected customers have been contacted by SMS text messages, which include their options to rebook or receive a full refund.
