Norwegian Air has published details of a temporary transatlantic schedule for the first two weeks of April as it attempts to deal with the ongoing fallout from the grounding of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft used in its Irish fleet.

The airline has already temporarily deployed a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to operate daily flights between Dublin airport and New York Stewart airport.

This flight combines the Dublin to New York and Providence flights, with passengers travelling to Providence travelling the remainder of the journey by bus.

Now Norwegian says it will temporarily operate additional services from Dublin Airport using a Boeing 737-800.

This will fly the new Dublin to Hamilton route four times a week the company says. The aircraft will also be used on the other three days on the Dublin-Providence route.

The new aircraft will begin operations on Sunday.

Passengers travelling from Cork or Shannon to and from New York Stewart and Providence will be bused to and from Dublin airport for their flights, where required.

Norwegian is among dozens of airlines globally who have been impacted by the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX fleet, following two fatal crashes involving the aircraft in recent months.

As well as bringing in different aircraft, the airline has also been actively re-routing customers through other airports and offered passengers the chance to re-book or receive a full refund free of charge if they no longer wish to travel.

It has also been reallocating aircraft within its fleet and combining flights.

In a statement, Norwegian said it is continuing to temporarily withhold further ticket sales on all routes which 737 MAX had been operating on, in order to be certain that it can meet customer expectations.

It also said it is actively working on more permanent measures that will enable it to operate normal services from April 11th.

Norwegian said earlier this month it would seek compensation from Boeing for costs resulting from the grounding of the global MAX fleet.

"The company has a good dialogue with Boeing and is confident of reaching a constructive agreement," Norwegian said, without elaborating.
