Norwegian Air 'has Belfast to US flight in pipeline'

By John Mulgrew

Norwegian Air is expected to announce a new direct flight from Belfast to the US in the coming weeks. The carrier could reveal several new routes from Ireland to US destinations such as Boston and New York, according to industry reports.

It is also believed that Belfast could secure a direct link to New York as part of the plans.

Last month, the last United Airlines flight from the city to New York took to the skies.

The firm was offered a £9m bailout package to retain the route, but the deal eventually fell through.

Belfast International Airport has been searching for a replacement since then.
