In another major air service announcement for John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, Norwegian Airlines, one of Europe’s leading ultra-low-cost airlines, announced June 21 that it will operate daily non-stop flights between Hamilton and Dublin beginning March 31, 2019.

This service will mark the airline’s first-ever transatlantic service from Canada, and launch fares are expected to start as low as $279 CAD one way. More details are available in the airline’s news release.

Considered one of the world’s fastest-growing airlines, Norwegian first met with Hamilton and Vantage representatives at annual air service development conference Routes Americas back in 2016, where the conversation to bring Norwegian to Hamilton International began.

“We are very excited about entering the Canadian market, and provide Canadians with Norwegian’s combination of affordable low fares and award-winning service, whether they are heading to the Caribbean or Europe. This is only our first step into Canada and as the world’s fastest-growing airline, we look forward to expanding our presence here in the next few years,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer.

For travellers in the Southern Ontario region, this service will add to the growing number of flight options available out of Hamilton International.

“Today’s announcement by Norwegian introducing its first-ever transatlantic flight between Europe and Canada is a game-changer for travellers in Southern Ontario. Hamilton International provides access to a large population base and is well positioned to facilitate low-cost operations for carriers such as Norwegian. Our passengers love flying from Hamilton and will now be able to access affordable options to destinations in Europe. We are thrilled to welcome Norwegian and its transatlantic service to Dublin next summer 2019, when people will be able to access this new service exclusively from Hamilton.”
