Norwegian to Return to Dublin in 2022
Norwegian have announced their schedule for the summer of 2022 and they will return to Dublin with services from Oslo and Copenhagen. They will return initially with four services per week on these routes. The airline has not operated to Dublin since the pandemic outbreak and has downsized since concentrating on domestic services with Norway and just a couple of international routes within Scandinavia. Norwegian will offer 259 routes from the Nordics as a result of travel restrictions and quarantine requirements easing and consequently demand for flights increasing.
Commenting on the announcement of the airlines return to routes to Ireland, the UK and across Europe, CEO of Norwegian, Geir Karlsen said, “We are pleased to be able to present our flying schedule for the next summer season. With this summer schedule, we will continue to deliver on our strategy of investing in Norway and the Nordic region. In recent months, we have noticed an increased demand from customers, and we look forward to welcoming them on board to their favourite Nordic destinations. Norwegian is now well equipped to look ahead to 2022, although we will continue to some extent to be affected by the pandemic as the industry begins to recover. We have considerable flexibility in the use of our aircraft, and after the restructuring, we have lower debt, an adapted fleet and organisation, and we have received new capital. It has been a tough time, but the result is that we are stronger now than before the pandemic.”
