Norwegian Air International (D8, Dublin Int'l) has said it will not resume transatlantic services from Cork and Shannon in Ireland and will instead re-route passengers via Dublin Int'l.

"Due to the continued grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX by the European aviation authorities, our flights to and from Cork and Shannon will be re-routed via Dublin for the remainder of the summer season," it said in a statement.

The carrier's route from Cork to Providence is a summer-only seasonal service, while flights from Shannon to Providence and Newburgh were initially launched as year-round but were subsequently suspended during the Winter 2018/19 season.

In April, after the grounding of the B737-8s, Norwegian Air International tentatively postponed the resumption of its transatlantic flights from the two Irish cities to July 31, 2019.

According to the ch-aviation fleets advanced module, Norwegian Air International has nine grounded B737 MAX 8s. The carrier also operates fifty-eight in-house B737-800s and wet-leases one A330-300 from Evelop Airlines, one B737-400 from Air Mediterranean, one A321-200 from DOT LT, one B737-300 from GetJet Airlines, and two -800s from its parent Norwegian.

The carrier's current transatlantic network from Dublin encompasses services to Hamilton, ON (5x weekly using a B737-800), Newburgh (daily using the Evelop A330-300), and Providence (4x weekly using a B737-800).

For both Newburgh and Providence, Norwegian Air International is the only carrier operating scheduled services to Europe.

The LCC's decision will tentatively leave Cork without transatlantic flights during the summer 2019 season. Meanwhile, Shannon sees scheduled services to North America through Aer Lingus (to Boston and New York JFK), Delta Air Lines (to JFK), United Airlines (to New York Newark), and American Airlines (to Philadelphia Int'l). British Airways uses the Irish airport as a technical stop on the outbound leg of its London City-New York JFK service.
