Happy days, hopefully they'll start pumping some funds into the airport soon.

They certainly seem to grow consistently. The Holidays product is very well put together.

I would not be surprised it they pull the plug. Load Factors have not been great.

OK if you are flying point to point but if you need a USA connection I find DUB and LHR more useful

Well of course that was satire, but why would we need politicians involved in air transport anyway? They should be kept as far away as possible from anything flying.

Belfast International is a privately-owned airport, Norwegian is a publicly-listed company. There should be no intersection with Stormont at all. If the pair of them can't make the routes add-up then that's just the market at work.

Nowegian currently have an arrangement with EZY to feed flights from BFS at LGW. What you are saying is that they are going to go into competition with EZY and start an operation to LGW from BHD to benefit passengers who live in North Down?

Hahaha so Norwegian giving up the transatlantic routes in favour of BHD to LGW. Get real ,wishful thinking lad. They share with easyJet for connections at Gatwick and have reduced massive in the UK.

BMI, who I worked for as ground and cabin crew were going bust, then went bust and were saved by BA . Manx2/Citiwing unsafe airline who stopped trading as the CAA stepped in. Lingus who only operate 1 route now as they sub charter
the AGP/FAO to ASL on an ever decreasing summer schedule. Haha

The routes are not failing so let's wait and see. Certainly won't be seen at BHD.
