It's also increasing its summer service from Shannon, doubling the frequency of flights to Providence, Rhode Island, from two to four a week, and adding a third weekly flight to New York. It also flies from Belfast International Airport to the destinations.

Norwegian is adding the additional flights due to the level of demand from both leisure and business travellers for the services. The airline flies to Stewart International Airport about 100km from Manhattan. Its service to Providence is designed to cater for passengers travelling to Boston.

A spokesman for Norwegian said the double-daily service between Dublin and Stewart International may become year-round if there's enough demand.
