Cork - Boston transatlantic flights deferred /2016-02-19

Plans to launch the first transatlantic flights from Cork Airport in May have been deferred.
Norwegian Airlines confirmed last night that continuing delays by the US Department of Transportation
(DoT) on its Irish subsidiary’s application for a foreign carrier permit means it cannot launch the service 
as planned in May.
The delays have also forced the deferral of its proposed Cork to Barcelona service, which would have 
shared airline crews and aircraft with the proposed Boston service.
However, the huge low-fares airline, which has also voiced plans to launch a Cork to New York service 
next year, reaffirmed its commitment to introduce transatlantic flights from Cork Airport.
A Norwegian Airlines spokesman said it is not ruling out the possibility of launching the Boston service 
before the end of this year .
However, it hinges on the outcome of an arbitration process triggered by the European Commission which 
could take at least four months to reach a conclusion.
