Dublin Airport is delighted to welcome the launch of Norwegian’s new service to Stockholm.

Norwegian will operate its new twice weekly service on a year round basis.

“We are delighted to welcome Norwegian’s new Dublin to Stockholm service,” said Dublin Airport Managing Director, Vincent Harrison.

“This new route together with the increase in frequency on its Dublin-Oslo service recently represents a 50%  increase in capacity on Norwegian’s routes between Dublin and Scandinavia this summer.  We look forward to welcoming the airline’s two new transatlantic routes from Dublin in a few weeks,” he added.

Norwegian Chief Commercial Officer Thomas Ramdahl said: "As the countdown begins to our exciting new transatlantic routes from Ireland, we are also delighted to launch new flights from Dublin to Stockholm, giving Irish passengers an affordable way to explore one of Scandinavia's most popular destinations.”

Norwegian first launched services from Dublin Airport in 2009 to Copenhagen and Oslo.  The airline is growing its business from Dublin further with the addition of a daily transatlantic flight to Stewart International in New York state and a five times weekly service to Providence, Rhode Island from July 1.

So far this year, more than 10.9 million passengers have travelled through Dublin Airport, a 6% increase compared to the first five months of last year.

Dublin Airport has welcomed an additional 640,000 passengers between January and May.

Dublin Airport has direct flights to more than 185 destinations in 41 countries operated by a total of 47 airlines.
