Norse Atlantic Secure Dublin Slots

New start-up airline, Norse Atlantic Airways has secured 38 weekly slots at Dublin Airport for the coming winter season, enough for the airline to operate 19 weekly round-trip flights. The airline finally commenced operations with a flight from Oslo to New York JFK last Tuesday. The airline had been launched in March 2021 and has taken delivery of many of the former Norwegian Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft that were stored during the pandemic following Norwegian’s decision to withdraw from long-haul operations. Norse Atlantic took delivery of their first aircraft in December 2021 which was the first of six on lease from BOC Aviation, they are also in the process of taking nine Dreamliner’s on lease from AerCap.

Norse Atlantic have started operations from Oslo, routes from London Gatwick and Berlin are due to start shortly, including an Oslo-Gatwick-New York rotation. The new airline will start to serve Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Los Angeles in the US with services to Dubai due to start in the winter with the airline having received slots in the Middle East. The new routes from Dublin have not yet been confirmed.

A spokesperson recently commented on the possibility of operating from Dublin when they said, “We are very pleased about secured slots at Dublin Airport. During our launch phase, the flexibility of our network is paramount to ensure we take advantage of commercially viable opportunities and routes. We will announce further details in due course.”
